Maidenii Nocturne Cask Rye Malt Whisky
When pondering what our ninth Trials & Exceptions release could be we found ourselves questioning what existing spirits could pair exceptionally with an upcoming whisky product. A no-brainer, we found whisky and vermouth to be a fantastic combination and sought to pair the two together in a unique and highly limited release. Having consumed more than a little bit of Maidenii Vermouth in our time, the team saw the iconic Australian brand as a natural partner for the product. The process saw casks that matured Maidenii Nocturne filled with a bespoke blend of Rye Malt Whisky to impart notes of botanically infused Australian Vin Amer and the subtle spice of rye, offering a flavourful intersection of grapefruit zest, plum, cloves and curry leaf with just a hint of bitterness and a long and complex finish.
Plum, ginger snaps and toffee evolve into notes of cinnamon, candied orange and golden wattle pollen
