Nonesuch ND21 ex Red Wine Dual Cask Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky – Historic

$280 AUD

44.5%  500ml

Bottled in January 2021 at a little over two years old for immediate release, only 75 bottles were produced at 44.5% ABV from two 20 litre casks that were sourced by the Distillery from a small Barossa Valley cooperage. 

These American oak barrels previously were filled with Red Wine.  The wood was broken down, reshaped, coopered and re-toasted to form smaller format barrels.

As explained by the Distillery:

“This whisky shows subtle notes reflecting the prior fill and a smoothness attributable to small cask maturation.”

Each bottle is individually numbered. 

This product is located in Australia. 


Nonesuch Distillery

About 35 minutes east of Hobart is the small town of Sorell overlooking Tiger Head Bay. One of the farms near Sorell is home to Nonesuch Distillery. Rex Burdon and his small shed are just up the hill from the main road and producing several different styles of spirits. There have been a few small batches of whisky produced at Nonesuch but Rex has made his reputation through making sloe gin and sloe malt. His enthusiasm for this hands-on process is contagious and the goats and chickens that roam around the distillery add to its rural charm. The term “Nonesuch” comes from a family farm that Rex’s ancestors used to own. They were extremely proud of their land and the work they were doing on it that to them, it was better than any other farm, hence “Nonesuch”.  A boisterous statement but also a motivator for Rex and his team to continue experimenting and finding their perfect house style of whisky.
