A surprisingly fruit-forward Single Malt from Tasmania that’s been bringing home the awards.

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.

With ten international medals, Sullivans Cove American Oak Single Cask is the most-awarded Spirit. It was also the first Australian Whisky to be designated "Liquid Gold" in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. It was aged in ex-Bourbon casks, but has no official age statement. We think that’s because it’s a combination of various ages of their signature Single Malt. To our taste buds, it sips like it’s ten to eleven years old — but this is a single cask release, so the profile will vary a bit from batch to batch. Importantly, it’s bottled at a lovely 47.5% ABV.

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.
