A brand new release for Fleurieu Distillery's Cellar Door, and they were generous enough to allow us to have a bottle.
Made using a 100% Australian barley, Mt Lofty spring water, and matured in South Australian Tawny Port Casks, and seasoned by the Southern Ocean climate. This whisky truly highlights the distillery's DNA.
On the nose, there is brown sugar, dates, and dried moscatels.
Palate has similar dried fruits such as dates and moscatels, with a hint of toasted muesli, and some umami. Chewy, medium rich, medium sweetness, not cloying. There is also a slight herbal earthy note on the back palate. Overall very balanced with a long finish. Perfect for some of these chilly autumn nights.
