Nant American Oak Bourbon Wood Cask Tasmanian Single Malt - Historic

$750 AUD

63%
500ml

An old style Nant expression bottled in 2013 when Keith Batt used to sign the labels himself. Those were the days! 

It was a single cask whisky matured in an American oak bourbon cask that secured 95.5 points and “Liquid Gold Status” in the 2015 Whisky Bible.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Several layers of honey and a Sauternes cask style fruitiness
Taste: Rich barley enormity. Juicy, thick and with a hint of feint. Renowned for its profound richness.
Finish: Ridiculously long. Soft muscovado sugars with the lightest touch of honey, liquorice and maple syrup. The vanillas build and then give way to tasty butterscotch.

Nant Distillery

It has been something of a rollercoaster at Nant. It launched with much fanfare at an idyllic site near Bothwell in the Tasmanian Highlands, won much acclaim for the quality of some of its early expressions, only to sink into the depths of despair as a result of a whisky barrel investment scheme gone wrong, but then to start climbing back as a result of a significant change in ownership and structure. This led to renovation of the existing premises and then substantial expansion with the construction of a second still house.

 With no new bottlings flowing from Nant, we only offer those which found much favour under the old regime and now form part of the Nant archive. With quality never in question, these expressions are getting increasing attention from collectors and investors as their number is finite in the extreme.
