Dark Valley Peacock’s Feather Killara ex-Sherry Cask Strength – Historic

Dark Valley Peacock’s Feather Killara ex-Sherry Cask Strength – Historic

$620 AUD


500 ml

Bottled by Dark Valley Whisky Company in late-2019 from a Killara Distillery ex-Sherry cask to produce only 25 individually numbered bottles at an ABV of 62.6%.

Peacock’s Feather - those who meander down Cataract Gorge in the north of Tasmania will be familiar with the ringing cries of the local peacocks. The arrogant males strut around the grassy flats near the fast-flowing waters like lords surveying their fiefdoms, occasionally fanning their impressive tails in a display of aesthetic prowess. A whisky with aromas and flavours as complex as all the colours in the peacock’s feather.

Indicative Tasting Notes:

Powerful sherry sweetness and fruit cake with brandy butter fill the nose, with burnt sugar toffee, banana bread and roasted nuts covering the palate with a creamy mouthfeel and 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.
