Dark Valley Magnate’s Monocle Adams ex-Shiraz Cask Strength - Historic

Dark Valley Magnate’s Monocle Adams ex-Shiraz Cask Strength - Historic

$695 AUD


500 ml

Bottled by Dark Valley Whisky Company in late 2020 from an Adams Distillery ex-Shiraz cask to produce only 29 individually numbered bottles.

Some whiskies are subtle and refined, while others are blunt and intense. On rare occasions there are whiskies that possess immense flavour with maintaining poise and finesse. The flavours and aromas can conjure up images of stately homes and velvet smoking jackets, sipping amber liquid from crystal glasses by an open fire. An indulgent whisky as rich and extravagant as the tallest of top hats.

Indicative Tasting Notes:

Rich sumptuous chocolate covering red berries with the malt qualities shining through. (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.
