$280 AUD

45%  500ml

Paragon (noun): a model of excellence.

This whisky was matured in three small 20 litre casks coopered from barrels that previously held Australian Red Wine, including one that held a classic Tasmanian Pinot Noir.  The casks were chosen for the different but complementary notes each provided to the whisky.

The distiller has chosen to partially "floc" this whisky.  That means retaining a little of the naturally occurring oils and proteins that provide an enormous amount of the flavour, mouth-feel and the finish of a great whisky.   

117 bottles. Each bottle is individually hand labelled and 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.
