Dark Valley Conductor’s Watch Spring Bay ex-Port Cask Strength - Historic

$695 AUD


500 ml

Bottled by Dark Valley Whisky Company in mid-2022 from a Spring Bay Distillery 20 litre ex-Port cask to produce only 26 bottles at an ABV of 63.9%.

Conductor’s Watch – the backbone of so many country towns, and modern cityscapes for that matter, is the rail network. Many Scottish regions began making whisky in earnest when the trains could deliver the grain and distribute the resulting bottles. Something that is expected by all passengers when a locomotive is involved is punctuality, and in the old days this was the purview of the conductor. A whisky the flavour of which always arrives on schedule.

Indicative Tasting Notes:

A dense and rich Christmas cake drizzled with caramel sauce and vanilla custard, heavy on the brandy. Lovely cherry and mixed berry compote complete the dessert aromas and flavours with a very long finish.  (Dark Valley Whisky Company)

Dark Valley Whisky Company was established in 2014 by Alex Moores based on the model of the independent bottlers of Scottish and other world whiskies.

His aim is to bottle all Tasmanian distilleries in a way that showcases the raw and elementary qualities of the different distilleries. He began with three releases featuring whisky distilled at Lark Distillery and the range has since been extended to include Adams, Killara, Launceston, Redlands and Spring Bay.

As at January 2022, Dark Valley has bottled 25 Tasmanian whiskies at cask strength, mostly small runs of about 30 bottles from 20 litre casks.  24 of the 25 expressions have already sold out on the Dark Valley website.

Dark Valley comes from the Gaelic name Glen Dhu, which is the area in Tasmania where Alex grew up and is now the headquarters of Dark Valley Whisky.
