Red Gum Smoked Single Malt Whisky
The seventh release under our Trials and Exceptions label, and the first in a two-part series, this exceptional whisky represents a milestone in both our history and our quest to source all our seven malts from within NSW.
With only 2,005 bottles in existence Red Gum Smoked Single Malt Whisky uses native NSW red gum to smoke the NSW grown and malted barley from our friends at Voyager Craft Malt. It pays tribute to one of Australia’s most majestic eucalypt trees and offers heady flavours redolent of campfire smoke, smoked meat, ripe nectarine, fresh jasmine and lavender with a subtle salty edge.
An up front abundance of sultanas, muscatels and dried fruit peel. There is parma violets and peonies with campfire smoke, hand cut bacon and fresh paperbark.
An oily and weighty mouthfeel that carries flavours of roasted nuts, raisins and fresh flowers towards a complex mid palate which is laden with dark chocolate and tarry white smoke.
The smoke persists with a saline edge. The floral and rich smoke battles for dominance into a long and satisfying dovetail.
