Our first Tassie Trifecta of Whisky is an incredible Adams Distillery Special Release from the rockstars of Tasmanian Distilleries – Adams Distillery. What a way to start the trifecta with an Adams Distillery Special Release Pinot-Bourbon Slosh Barrel from the boys in Perth, Tasmania.
The finish is long and sweet with caramel fruit, vanilla beans and a most pleasing leather quality. This whisky has been doted upon by the Adam’s boys since its birth…a whisky that has been attended to every month like clockwork in a brand-new concept in ageing whisky.
To make this one of a kind release, Adams take an ex-Buffalo Trace Bourbon cask and half fill it with new make. This is aged for around 2 years and every month or so, the cask is ‘sloshed’ around and then flipped to the other end. After this, it is transferred to a Goaty Hill Wines Pinot cask and once again, lovingly ‘sloshed’ and flipped every month or so for another 9 months. Hey presto… the Pinot-Bourbon Slosh Special Release!
This Adams Distillery Special Release is an exclusive release for The Single Malt Whisky Club and we couldn’t be prouder to release it to our members as part of the Tassie Trifecta of Whisky!
Nose: Caramel pie, dried fruits, raw cookie dough some pear notes and just the slightest hint of vanilla.
Palate: Sweet caramelised fruit, vanilla beans and a most pleasing leather quality – and tiny amount of astringency. Luscious oily mouthfeel.
Finish: long and sweet. A slight spicyness around the back of the mouth, toffee and a burst of bubble gum at the end.
