$560 AUD

65.7%

500 ml

Bottled by Dark Valley Whisky Company in early 2019 from a Redlands Distillery ex-Sherry cask to produce only 28 individually numbered bottles at an ABV of 65.7%.

Coachman’s Glove – before the modern era of the internal combustion engine, the roads were full of traditional horse drawn carriages, often reserved for those who could afford a private driver.  The coachman was the embodiment of a classy chauffeur with a brass buttoned vest and shined leather boots, welcoming passengers on board with an outstretched hand.  A whisky that begins with a velvety welcome to the journey ahead.

Indicative Tasting Notes:

Mellow red fruits such as plum and nectarine, with chewy oak and toffee apple on the palate, silky and long finish of stone fruit and raisins. (Dark Valley Whisky Company)

Distillery

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.
