Sullivans Cove French Oak Cask Matured Tasmanian Whisky bottled 2014 - Historic

$2,250 AUD

47.5%  700 ml

This example was bottled in 2014 just after Sullivans Cove French Oak Single Cask Tasmanian single malt whisky had famously become a legend in its own right, on winning World’s Best Single Malt at the World Whiskies Awards that year. It became one of the most sought after whiskies in the world, having put the Australian whisky industry on the map, in a very quiet, unassuming way, reflective of the character of their master distiller, Patrick Maguire.

Aged in a 300L French Oak ex-tawny barrel, this expression imparts rich flavours of Christmas spice, chocolate, dried fruit and powerful oak. As a single cask bottling, it will have its own characteristics, which will subtly differentiate it from the 2014 world champion, but perhaps not by much. After all, it comes from an almost identical cask, is the same year of bottling, and the same ABV at a fraction of the price.

Sullivans Cove

Australia’s most awarded distillery and one of the country’s modern whisky distilling pioneers, Sullivans Cove has achieved great success in recent years, including international recognition when their French Oak Single Cask was crowned World’s Best Single Malt in 2014 by the World Whiskies Awards. This, alongside exemplary ratings from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, propelled Sullivans Cove into the spotlight, but with limited stock and a long maturation period, their whiskies are highly sought after and very hard to find.
