Sullivans Cove have announced the release Special Cask Edition #6, TD0265 – their first Special Cask for 2020, available exclusively to mailing list members.
Distilled in April 2008 and decanted in October 2019, this first-of-its-kind release from Sullivans Cove was aged in a 300-L, first-fill American oak ex-Apera (Australian sherry-style fortified wine) cask and is bottled at a healthy 47.6% ABV.
NOSE: Apricot jam and ripe nectarines in a big old barn full of freshly harvested hay. There’s also baked apples with raisins and delicate spices, heaps of buttery caramel and toasted malt, and a hint of freshly pressed linen.
PALATE: Rich, creamy and viscous with a burst of Maltesers, followed by apricots and plums dusted with cocoa powder. Plenty of chewy caramel, dried fig and clove balanced out with a touch of refreshing sea salt.
FINISH: Refined tannins balance perfectly, swelling towards a decadent finish of dulce de leche and bread-and-butter pudding, along with cocoa, pepper and toasted marshmallow.
Note that purchases are strictly limited to one bottle per person.
