Howdy Single Malt Whisky Club Members,
For the last year or so we have been experimenting with different flavour profiles, closer in style to Scottish drams rather than our historically full throttle Australian cask driven drams.
Batch 020 is a bit of a reversal of form for us and trending back to our historic style, but perhaps not quite at full throttle. Interestingly, since we wrote these notes I am finding the whisky tastes quite different, with wine gums on the nose along with orange marmalade and herbal overtones. The finish now has notes of both the red and white and black and white boiled lollies.
We get bored here at The Shed, drinking the same whisky all the time, but at least we won’t get bored with batch 020 as it seems to be different with every time we approach it. We hope you won’t get bored with it either!

Nose: the nose is rich and luxurious with sherry notes and dried stone fruit, chocolate brownies or black forest cake and wild berries
Palate: The mouthfeel is boisterous without being loud or offensive and full fat with the luxurious nose carrying through to the palate. Faint notes of both nuts and chocolate are hidden amongst the fruit
Finish: The finish is long but light. As the fruit and chocolate fade a reasonably rich malt character steps up to take their place and remind you that this is in fact a malt whisky
