French Oak White Wine TD0097

French Oak White Wine – the latest edition of our Cask Variations series – is now available exclusively to our mailing list members. TD0097 was matured for 12 years in a 225L French oak cask previously used to age Australian white wine. The result is an exceptional and uniquely Australian whisky that combines the richness of Sullivans Cove single malt spirit with the bright fruit of Australian white wine. Bottled at 46.7% abv, this cask yielded only 327 bottles.

“This remarkable whisky has a nose of rich honeycomb, milk chocolate and apricot along with muscatels and ripe red berries. The silky texture is immediately apparent across the palate, with flavours of vanilla, ripe strawberries and peaches. There’s also a note that comes through the mid palate similar to the snow pea and toasted sourdough notes of many fine Champagnes. On the finish, there’s spicy oak and a sweet floral character of Turkish delight and apricot blossom that develops and lingers long, round and warm. This is a beautiful whisky, and it’s redefined for us the balance between herbal, sweet, fruity and spicy.”
– Heather Tillott, Production Manager

As with our previous Cask Variations (like last year’s American Oak Tawny release), the background colour denotes the kind of oak (blue for French in this case), and the stripe denotes a different previous fill than we would normally use (white wine instead of tawny).
