The only whisky of its kind in Australia, Chocolate Rye Malt Whisky was drawn from a single batch of eight casks as the fourth release under the Archie Rose Concepts label, reserved for our rarest and most experimental releases.

This whisky provides an insight into early explorations of heavily roasted malts, a key step in our journey towards embracing the more challenging, lower yielding, but far more flavourful world of roasted malts.

Chocolate Rye Malt Whisky showcases chocolate roasted rye, rare malted rye and pale malt yielding flavours of caraway, mint, shortbread, violets, hot chocolate and fruit jams. It's matured in Australian re-shaved, toasted and charred Apera (Sherry) casks, adding notes of dried fruits and sultanas, which complement the biscuity, creamy and chocolate flavours from the spirit.

We invite you to enjoy our Chocolate Rye Malt Whisky in the spirit it was created: to be savoured in good company and served the way you like.

Tasting Notes


A floral first impression with rose, dill and white musk. With a moment in the glass, notes of pecan, raisins and crystallised ginger. Notes of grapefruit zest, praline and creme brulee sit in the background.


Chocolate truffles, roasted hazelnuts.


A slight spritz with mocha and cola. Characteristic sweet baking spices linger with dark chocolate.

Production Notes

Grain Sourced

A spirit is only as good as the materials used to make it. Great effort has been taken to showcase the unique qualities of the malt used in this whisky. We are putting malt back on the agenda.
