Dark Valley Serpent’s Den Launceston ex-Bourbon Cask Strength - Historic

$695 AUD

62.5% ABV

500 ml

Bottled by Dark Valley Whisky Company in early 2021 from a Launceston Distillery 20 litre ex-Bourbon cask to produce a mere 25 bottles at an ABV of 62.5%.

Well known for both tasting and smelling with their tongues, a skill that many whisky drinkers would appreciate, snakes are formidable at stalking their prey. Silent and hidden, they can strike at any time on their unsuspecting victim, like the powerful palate of a whisky concealed behind a mellifluous nose. A whisky that is both silky smooth and packing a punch, which you disrespect at your peril.

Indicative Tasting Notes:

Fresh vanilla and peaches and cream, interwoven with sweet oak. Delicious fruit salad and citrus confectionary. Long finish carrying through vanilla pastry and toasted oak flavours. (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.
