A stunning seventeen year-old Single Malt from one of the southern-most distilleries in the world.

Tasmania is a large island province of Australia off the southern coast below Melbourne. Since Australia was a part of the British Empire, it should not surprise anyone that they would eventually take up distilling. In fact, there were sixteen operating distilleries in the capital of Hobart by 1824. Tasmania did their own version of Prohibition. Bill Lark founded what would become Sullivan’s Cove Distillery in 1994 — one of the first two distilleries established after that law was overturned. They are now under new management and celebrating twenty-five years of Spirits excellence WAY down under.

The Old & Rare releases from Sullivan’s Cove are the oldest Spirits to date. There have been a few of them so far, and casks must be a minimum of sixteen year-old to qualify. Their latest release is Sullivans Cove Old & Rare American Oak 17 Year Old Single Cask is their signature Tasmanian Single Malt aged in an ex-Bourbon cask for a full seventeen years and is bottled at a wondrous 47.5% ABV. As a numbered single-cask release, each cask is a bit different — obviously — but one of these was awarded "World’s Best Single Cask Single Malt" at the World Whiskies Awards.

Smartass Corner:
Tasmania was one the first to enact Prohibition in 1838. And while Prohibition in the United States lasted thirteen years, in Tasmania it lasted more than 150 years… all the way until 1990.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is dense and rich with notes of ripe berries, orange zest, juicy pears, florals, and a hint of ginger.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile very fruit-forward with notes of apricot, mango, pineapple, coconut, and oranges followed by just a bit of black pepper, vanilla, and mixed woods.

Finish
Vanilla comes through more on the finish with a hint of cocoa powder.
