    N: Exotic! I find myself transported to Kochi fishing port on the South West Coast of India to enjoy a fruity creamy curry with apricots and grilled limes served as an accompaniment to stone bass in a banana leaf. This is followed up with vanilla ice cream melting over a white bloomer,…. do you get the picture? I’m home & away!

    T: A sumptuous full delivery over a fruit complex [varied styles, types, brands] over peanut oil, coconut oil, lime & vanilla,… the taste of Thailand in some respects yet we are certainly also US-bound, the bourbon-firm prickles a testament here [perhaps if bourbon was like this I’d be wild for it]. I marvel at the weighty yet buoyant body with its luscious yet bone-dryness. In fact, the pallet sensations are far more striking than the flavours that I sense are coming from the spirit [fermentation] as much as the maturation [more on that later].

    F: I can’t describe what’s happening, initially, a new experience in some respects where the flavours are centred around the textural sensations and where everything is just so. After flashes of a 1964 Glen Moray & Tamdhu 4yo Pure Malt [WLP90] comes perfectly salt-seasoned and sustaining popcorn [without the crunch] which eludes to this one’s bourbon cask reliance.

    C: West meets East, perhaps, though in the end, it’s the US bourbon influence that wins out. Great cask though!

    Balanced & Clean
    My very first Sullivans Cove! Founded in 1994 in Tasmania, the reputation in those early years was not exactly flattering, but in 1999 the distillery was placed under new administration, in 2004 the distillery moved to Cambrigde and by 2007 the tide began to turn. Jim Murray gave their American Oak a big 95/100 in his bible and in 2014 they even won the title Best Single Malt Whisky in the World at the Word Whiskies Awards with their single cask HH0525. The rest is history, so to speak. I taste a single bourbon cask that was bottled in 2010, before the distillery gained name and fame.
    Deliciously sweet on cotton candy, apricots and vanilla. Applesauce and candied peach, sweet and delicious. Do you sometimes think in colors when you smell a whisky? I can't get the color golden yellow out of my head.
    The arrival is firm with some wood herbs, but this certainly does not require water. The taste is a great continuation of the nose, with a waxy edge. Very pleasant and accessible.
    The finish lasts forever and remains sweet and candy-like, while the wood adds a slight spiciness that keeps the mouth completely warm.
    Well balanced, very clean Australian (well, Tasmanian) whisky.
