    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Colour: Lovely Dark reddish – rose gold. Nose: A striking charcuterie note at first then sweet plums marmalade and Palate: Instant and satisfying mouthcoating, a brief pepper burst gives way to biscuit spices, stewed fruits and threes a hint of aniseed there too. No sign of the savoury notes from the nose. This is all sweet fruits and spices. Finish: Nice, satisfying and long finish. No real surprises, just buckets of flavour keeping those cheeks salivating as you chew it to the end.

  • All the way from the Emerald Isle, a limited edition, 16 year old Irish whiskey and we have the entire Australian allocation of it. For all of our Irish whisky lovers out there – The Barr an Uisce 16yo Single Malt Whiskey. This whiskey is a limited edition (only 1803 numbered bottles), un-chill filtered, 16 year old cracker of a whiskey. Unusually for an Irish, the Barr an Uisce 1803 16 year old is double-distilled rather than triple distilled.  It has been aged in first fill Kentucky Bourbon barrels and is presented at 46% abv.  Not only that – as an added bonus, it’s in a 750ml bottle! Ahh… 750ml bottles…  It’s been awhile since we featured a whiskey with an ‘e’ in it. As lovers of Irish single malt whiskey well know – they are not exactly in abundant supply in this day and age all the way down here!
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: Very fresh and fruity on the nose. Lot’s of pears and citrus-y notes first up, but then a distinct salted caramel swirl soon becomes apparent. Palate: The citrus and white fruits go through to the palate – as does that interesting salted quality. More vanilla and also some honey there. Nice and crisp, fruity with a sweet roundness. Finish: Honey notes roll around the vanilla and fruit as it slowly fades.

  • After rave reviews from its initial Club release in 2021 and members wanting more, we have an Australian stunner of a whisky special release – the Chief’s Son ‘The Aiden 2016’ all the way from the multi-award winning distillery on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. With these credentials it will take pride of place in your collection.
    • From one of the oldest casks at Chief‘s Son
    • The first of the special ‘Family’ casks ever to be released
    • Made available for Christmas exclusively for the Single Malt Whisky Club
    • Casks originally coopered in France and used for Red Wine then Sherry
    • Re-coopered for whisky casks by none other than legendary cooper, Andrew Young from Seppeltsfield Estate
    • Each individually numbered bottle is individually laser etched
    We are super excited to offer an exclusive whisky made with family foremost in mind by Chief’s Son Distillery.  In fact, this whisky is all about family - make way for the Chief’s Son ‘The Aiden 2016’. This whisky is out of one of the oldest casks in the Chief’s Son bond-store. Hand filled in 2016 by Stuart’s son, Aiden – and made available exclusively to the Single Malt Whisky Club.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: Some mustiness at first but the sweetness soon materialises in the form of maple syrup, with a touch of bubble gum thrown in, some apricots and delicate leathery notes. Palate: Lovely rich oily mouthfeel here. A sweet yet nutty palate – with scorched almond brittle, caramel and slightly burnt toffee to boot. There’s also a suggestion of liquorice with just a little pepper at he back of the mouth. Finish: More nut brittle, pepper and oak swirl over and around each other in a flurry of rich caramel syrup. A lovely balance between the roast nuts and sweet caramel here – not too sweet but definitely not dry. Interestingly, on sharing my tasting notes with the Chief’s Son crew, it was revealed to me that their stills are electrically heated and they do get a lot of caramelisation of sugars onto the internal heating elements – hence the caramel notes. This whisky is just so very more-ish. I bet you’ll have poured another before the finish has run it’s course from the first dram!

    We are proud to launch a fantastic whisky into Australia! The Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey – Release No. 035
    • A whiskey, that although spelt with an ‘e’ is an authentic Single Malt made from 100% malted barley and twice-distilled in Scottish copper pot stills.
    • Limited to only 1521 individually numbered bottles
    • The only whiskey in the world that uses the famous Baronesse barley
    • A 750ml bottle (yes, an extra 50ml of goodness!)
    • Only available in Australia through The Single Malt Whisky Club!
    From the home of Boeing, Amazon, Microsoft and the birthplace of grunge – The beautiful city of Seattle, we are super excited to bring this amazing Single Malt to Australia, thus giving our members the opportunity to pioneer yet another fantastic ‘new world’ single malt. This time an American Single Malt! Release 035 was created by combining four casks of whiskey distilled from Baronesse Barley with two casks of whiskey distilled from their standard pale malt recipe. All six casks were aged for at least 39 months in charred, new American Oak, the result is an amazingly smooth, richly flavoured single malt.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: Rich warm toffee over fruity marmalade notes Palate: Mmm…sweet sweet syrupy mouthfeel. More of that sweet citrus – but more mandarin-y now. Sweet peanut brittle at the back of it all Finish: Warm spicy buzz with more toffee. Also, a nutty quality – roast almonds perhaps?

    A limited release (only 1934 bottles) individually numbered, uniquely peated Single Malt Whisky produced entirely from ingredients sourced in Washington State, USA. The Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey ‘Washington Peated’. Release 034 is Copperworks’ first release of a Peated Single Malt. It was crafted from eight casks of whiskey that were brewed and distilled from 100% of the Copeland variety of barley grown in Washington’s Skagit Valley and smoked during the malting process with Washington peat. Each cask of whiskey was matured for just over four years in lightly charred (char #1) new American Oak casks.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    I have to say that this is unlike any peated whisky I’ve ever tried before. I’m not sure if this is very lightly peated or it’s how the ‘Washington Peat’ presents – but this gives very little suggestion overall (if any) of smoke. Nose: No ‘smoke’ but a very definite ‘wet-soil’ mustiness sits over the top of salted caramel and a just tiny amount of all-spice. Palate: has a luxuriously syrupy mouthfeel (like #035). Stewed apple and rich floral notes but also an underlying leathery-earthiness. Finish: Medium length with a mild sweet spice that salivates the mouth. Once again – a mustiness rather than smokiness here. Wow – this is definitely a whisky that proves the adage ‘Peat ain’t Peat!’

  • Is there anything better than bringing a new whisky to Australia for the first time? Well yes… bringing TWO in the same month! Our second Aussie exclusive this month is the Glen Garioch 8yo from up-and-comers in the Scottish indy bottling industry, Dram Mor. Limited to only 241 individually numbered bottles, this CASK STRENGTH, SINGLE CASK Single Malt is matured in ex-bourbon barrels from the small batch specialist, Glen Garioch Distillery that has been making whisky since 1797 in North East Scotland.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: A solid base of granny smith apples underlies fresh and vibrant floral and grassy notes with a citrus tang. Palate: Wonderful, buttery, creamy mouthfeel luxuriously coats the palate before a wave of poached pear, vanilla custard, honey and buttered milk arrowroot biscuits and a lovely walnut flavour chase each other around the palate. Finish: Lovely medium peppery-ness leads the charge to the finish, but it’s the sweet, floral notes that linger longest! This is a wonderfully easy drinking dram (especially after a splash of water to open it’s cask strength goodness) and an almost textbook demonstration of fantastic highland spirit matched with first class oak. All the biscuits, nuts, vanilla and buttery mouthfeel you could ask for in a bourbon cask matured whisky.

  • Get ready for one of the FIRKIN greatest whiskies we have ever released! With spirit from the Tullibardine Distillery, aged in Firkins own custom casks that are made of alternating staves of American and French oak seasoned with both Amontidillado and Oloroso sherries and individually numbered and bottled exclusively for The Single Malt Whisky Club – the Firkin 49 Tullibardine 2012 is a Firkin awesome whisky from the whisky legend that is Mike Collings. This month we are so firkin happy to FINALLY be able to offer a Firkin Whisky Co. release as our ‘Malt of the Month’. I say finally as we’ve featured Firkin releases in the past as our ‘Members Extra’ (and they’ve sold out every time!) – but there’s never been enough brought into Australia to be able to offer it as a ‘Malt of the Month’.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Colour: Light amber Nose: Sweet frangipani at first, but a mild salty savoury note follows closely – salami? Palate: Sweet nut brittle, stewed fruit and yet more floral notes alongside a malty milk arrowroot biscuit swirl with a delightful creaminess in the mouth Finish: A mild spice tempers the sweetness but the nutty-maltiness persists and fades out enticing you to take another sip. This is a delightfully different whisky – nutty, sweet, floral and even savoury to boot! Easy and delightful to drink strait up, but adding a dash of water separates the flavours somewhat – and certainly doesn’t lessen the impact very much at all. You won’t be ready to rinse out your glass after just one, that’s for sure

  • The Member Small Batch Extra this month is the delectable Firkin Whisky Co. Firkin Benrinnes 2008 Madeira Cask from their ‘Firkin Rare’ Range. A single cask, limited edition, numbered bottling of only 259 bottles. The Firkin Benrinnes 2008 Madeira Cask (in fact all of the Firkin Rare range) is aged in custom ‘hybrid’ casks made of alternating American first-fill bourbon and new French Limousin oak staves. This Double Oak cask, in combination with the spicy richness of Madeira, creates a unique flavour profile. What emerges is rich, lively and a tad spicy. When the ex- 'Head of Malts’ at mega-booze-company Diageo (the man responsible for such things as Johnny Walker Blue Label and the ‘Classic Malts Collection’) teams up with the owner of ‘Blackadder International’ independent bottlers you get a marriage of decades of experience of whisky production with a newfound freedom to experiment! Oh – and also a Firkin lovely range of independently bottled single cask whiskies. We first offered a Firkin Whisky Co. release back in early 2020, and the superb Firkin Aultmore 2010 last month and the response is always HUGE! And so, by popular demand, we’ve got another offering from this firkin awesome independent bottler with a firkin massive pedigree.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: Wow – very interesting and a bit difficult to pin down. For me, there’s an almost salted meat overtone right at the start (almost like an Islay without the tar, iodine and smoke) – but that seems to morph into honey and then sour lollies (eg warheads) Palate: Nice and oily, coats mouth beautifully with a warm sweet vibe. That salty/savoury note found in the nose is conspicuously absent on the palate – but the honey continues (albeit muted), alongside sweet green apples or pears. A medium spice at the back of the mouth. Warming and sweet and easily Finish: A nice rolling spicey and sweet finish that lingers long enough to count as chewy in my humble opinion. Fades out with a residual warmth.

    Our Members Small Batch Extra this month is the the Iniquity Batch 20 whish we featured as the Malt of the Month last month. The Iniquity Batch 20 was an exclusive release for The Single Malt Whisky Club and we are excited to make the only remaining bottles in Batch 20 available to our members. Iniquity Batch 20 is made up of three casks – 2 first fill sherry and one first fill port cask from McWilliams. This wood was used to mature these fortified wines – not just transport them! OUR TASTING NOTES
    Colour: Liquid Bronze
    Nose: Quite a complex nose with lots of fruits, mixed peel and chocolate and espresso coffee notes. Palate: Lighter than the nose would lead you to believe, but still packed with a lovely buttery-ness that coats the abundant fruit notes nicely. Plum pudding notes and more chocolate. Finish: Lingering mild spice in back of palate with fruit on the side, fades out to a milk arrowroot

    The perfect gift for those whisky enthusiasts in your life (or a great way to get through lockdown) – The Lark Classic Cask Whisky Tasting Set! This specially-curated bundle of award winning deliciousness features 3  x 100ml bottles of Lark's finest whisky and a laser-etched Lark Glencairn Glass. Each of the whiskies in the Lark Classic Cask Whisky Tasting Set has a complex variety of flavours that the Lark team crafts from barrel to bottle. Lark Classic Cask 43% - Lark’s signature Tasmanian whisky, is a timeless single malt with hints of orange peel, vanilla bean, Christmas cake and golden syrup. Once you take a sip, the sweetness of butterscotch, the tartness of grapefruit and the earthiness of cloves will hit your tongue. The butterscotch and citrus linger while the finish is a smoky strand of Tasmanian peat. Lark SYMPHONY Nº1 40.2% - The brainchild of Head Distiller Chris Thomson. “I’ve always found a real joy in bringing different whiskies together. I think each distillery kind of has a fingerprint,” says Thomson. The blended malt has a nose of ripe mangos, tangerines and toasted pineapple. The finish is smooth and warm with fresh fruit and citrus for a balanced dram of Tasmanian whisky. Lark Cask Strength 58% - Fondly referred to as "Liquid Gold" by whisky fans. Like Classic Cask, it leads with an oaky aroma of orange peel, butterscotch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Its huge port cask influence gives in an intense vanilla and Christmas cake sweetness as well as maple syrup and stewed fruits. There’s a hint of Tasmanian peat smoke that carries through to where toffee, spices and citrus shine through for a warm, smooth finish.

    We are proud to offer the Launceston Distillery ‘SMWC Peated Special Edition’ – Bourbon and Tawny Cask Matured, a pleasantly peated pour of potable perfection straight out of Hanger 17  – the home of the Launceston Distillery. A mildly peated release and very approachable whisky, in keeping with the Distillery’s style. We’ve had fantastic responses to the Launceston Distillery offerings we’ve tried in the past – but this peated expression adds a whole new layer of complexity to their fruity offerings. As the name suggests, an exclusive bottling for The Single Malt Whisky Club - from peated malt aged in bourbon and tawny casks (at approx. 80:20 ratio) and bottled at 46%. It’s a delightfully complex whisky that balances the smoke/sweet ratio nicely. Made from unpeated Tasmanian and peated Scottish barley. This peated Launceston has none of the tarry, asphalt or medicinal/iodine notes that are often associated with peat – more a mild sweet smokiness over a sweet and fruity base. Whilst it seems to contain about the same level of peat that last year’s Kilkerran 12yo had (slightly less maybe – I'm out of the Kilkeran to compare it to as I write this) – the lack of any sort of savoury or salty notes makes this a completely different whisky. Much more fruit-driven.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Colour: Midway between copper and rose-gold Nose: Dusty antique furniture, sweet orange marmalade and a fresh, floral – almost minty - note. Palate: Nicely coats the mouth with a light oiliness at first. A medium level of peaty-mustiness cuts through a sweet honeyed crumpet with a splash of vanilla and spice on the side. Finish: A lengthy rollercoaster of smoky and sweet notes. Nice, long, warming and chewy!

  • Another ‘Waratah Wonder’ – this time from the wonder-ful Mr. Martin Pye and his Riverbourne Distillery - The Riverbourne Identity #9, a Limited Edition, French and American Oak matured whisky with delicate citrus and floral notes. The Riverbourne Identity #9 was made from NSW grown ‘Compass’ barley fermented using three different yeasts. The wash was distilled at Riverbourne Distillery, then aged in Cask #108 - a shaved and re-charred French Oak barrel with American oak lids - before being cut to 48% with Molongo River water then bottled. There is only 220 bottles of this whisky magnificence. This is the 9th Edition of ‘The Riverbourne Identity’ and it’s a completely different whisky than our peated Corowa Malt of the Month from Barrelhouse 28.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: An initial marmalade hit on the nose, followed by fresh-cut grass, apples and pears strait off the tree and (despite Martins claims to the contrary) I do get a subtle leathery note. Palate: Wow – a real unexpected custard-y creaminess at first, but then a rich and sweet fruitiness takes over. The sweetness of the fruit provides a nice contrast to the overall dryness of the spirit. Finish: Finish is long and sweet. A big malty surprise comes out of the whisky in the final stages. Very milk arrowroot bisquit-y.

  • This is a cask strength 'ode to the Sherry-cask'…From the masters of the single cask, Signatory Vintage, we’re proud to present this 11-year-old sherry-bomb, The Signatory Vintage Mortlach 2010 Aged 11 Years. This is a limited edition whisky with only 705 individually numbered bottles worldwide. This single malt whisky was distilled in 2010 at the Mortlach Distillery before being placed in a refill Hogshead. It was then finished in a fresh Sherry Butt for 15 months and in 2021 it was bottled at 57.8% ABV as part of the Signatory Vintage Cask Strength Collection. Mortlach’s bold flavour profile has seen it dubbed “The Beast of Dufftown” and is said to exist somewhere in between mellow and smoky. In a region renowned for its mellower, gentler ‘whisky-vibe’, Mortlach stands out for it’s robust, muscular and rich character.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: Rich, fruity and lush from the get-go. Dried fruits abound, but a deeper savoury quality lurks in the background. Palate: Big fruity sherry flavours galore here. If you’re missing Christmas cake already, then you’ll love this! All the fruitcake spices, rich red fruits, chocolate and coffee notes you’re craving! Finish:  Lovely and lush, chewy and long. Those fruity notes keep going on the back of the peppery waves and the lovely oiliness keeps that finish all over the mouth. Most definitely the sherry ‘yan’ to our Malt of the Month’s bourbon ‘Ying’. All the red-fruits, fruit cake, coffee and chocolate you could ask for in a big sherry-d whisky. The rich base spirit really carries those sherry influences well!

  • Up for your drinking enjoyment is legendary independent bottlers, Signatory Vintage and their fantastic take on an Island malt – the Pulteney 2008 Aged 12 Years. A Cask Strength, marriage of Bourbon and Sherry casks with a slight salty maritime influence that will dance on your taste buds. The Pulteney 2008 Aged 12 Years was distilled (as the name suggests) at the Pulteney Distillery and aged in refill Bourbon Barrels. After around 9 years the three casks were married into a single fresh Sherry Butt for 33 months to finish. The resultant whisky is bottled at cask strength, un-chill filtered and without any additives of any kind.
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: Poached pears, sultanas, unburnt tobacco, with a touch of salt on the nose as well. Palate: Fruit comes through much richer and darker than on the nose. Those big, red ‘sherry fruit tones’ in abundance, but also some vanilla and buttery notes from those bourbon barrels, some pepper there too – big on the first sip, but settles thereafter. Finish: Nice hearty and long finish, the pepper presents at the front of my tongue in waves, whilst the stewed fruit seems to sit on my cheeks. That sea-side salty nuance re-appears as well. I wouldn’t go as far as to say this is a ‘sherry bomb’ – this is much more balanced than that. The buttery, vanilla from the bourbon casks is nicely complimented by the fruity, first-fill sherry cask treatment it had for just shy of 3 years. And I do get the salty maritime influence I’ve always loved from Pulteney whisky. I can only assume that Signatory Vintage have bought the Bourbon barrels aged at Pulteney prior to marrying them in their own sherry butt. The salty notes definitely lead me to believe this is likely!

  • Made exclusively for the Single Malt Whisky Club, aged in Cabernet casks from a renowned Clare Valley winery and bottled at a premium 55% ABV for our members. This STRICTLY LIMITED viscous single malt is a rich journey into fig jam, vanilla, fresh tobacco, rice-pudding and Italian expresso. About halfway through last year, we introduced members to the renowned Spirit Thief Distilling Co based in Tasmania. This introduction was one of their independently bottled whiskies – the spirit distilled at Belgrove Distillery and aged in Mataro wine casks. This month we are delighted to announce another Spirit Thief offering but this time a whisky made 100% by Spirit Thief. No indy bottling this one – one of their very own!
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    Nose: Stewed fruit and oak strait away but there’s a beguiling sweetness over the top as well. I say ‘wizz-fizz’, my dear old dad says boiled lollies and my son (who, at 16, has literally been smelling whisky with me his whole life) says lemonade. Whatever it is, you can (and will!) nurse this one under your schnoz and argue about it for ages! Palate: A fantastically luscious moutfeel – rich and oily. Nice and fruity without being too sweet – but there are jammy notes as well. At full strength (55% ABV) it does provide a fair pepper, but if that’s not your thing, a dash of water settles that right down. Coffee and nutty notes flow on into the finish. Finish: Settles in for a while this one. Coffee and dark chocolate rolls around roasted nut brittle and sweet pipe tobacco in the tin as it fades out with a lovely warmth. This is one of those whiskies you bring out after a good dinner with good company. Then sit back and bask in the ‘wows’. It’s big and bold, but well behaved and with a finish that you’ll chew on with a smile. Be warned though. You are gonna argue about that sweet note on the nose. Just what is it?

    Behold Old Blighty! Big Ben ain’t got nothing on this whisky. An Australian exclusive to the Single Malt Whisky Club from England’s oldest Distillery (and from a family that has been growing and milling grain for over 600 years). We are super proud to get our hands on the limited release ‘The English’ Rum Cask Matured. From England’s oldest whisky Distillery, St. Georges, in Norfolk. ‘The English’ brand has been in Australia for a little while now and has been met with rave reviews, and we’re proud to have secured the whole Australian allocation of their ‘Rum Cask Matured‘ expression. Only 1440 bottles of this whisky exist worldwide and we have this fantastic Rum and Raisin delight for our members! Oddly enough, England’s ‘Oldest Distillery’ isn’t all that old as it turns out – being built in 2005 and first run of the stills in 2006. Yes – whilst some of the world’s oldest distilleries sit at the top of the continent – England itself has been completely bereft of whisky distilleries for over 100 years. That’s right – since the Lea Valley Distillery closed it’s doors in 1905 – England did not have a single whisky distillery. It took the son of an English grain-growing dynasty going back to the 1400’s to make this right. After a life of working in fields as diverse and geographically apart as mining in Australia, rural reconstruction in Russia and even building the first organic cattle and sheep farm under the ‘Country Stewardship Scheme’ in Norfolk, James Nelstrop saw his dream of 45 years come to life in 2006 when St. George’s Distillery opened for business. The St. George’s Distillery has led the charge for the English whisky-distilling scene. Since it’s opening in 2006, no less than 21 more whisky distilleries have begun producing in England. You have got to taste this exceptional single malt whisky!
    OUR TASTING NOTES
    This is a delightfully lush whisky with a real ‘Rum and Raisin ice-cream’ character at the first smell. Sweet, rich and creamy – with a lovely spiciness, and a complex palate. Nose: Pretty much screams ‘Rum and Raisin’ ice cream on the nose. Vanilla as well and a citrus tartness, but there is also that ‘rum funk’ – sort of over ripe tropical fruit – lingering in the background. Palate: The ‘rum funk’ element is gone, but the raisins and citrus persist. Sweet, oily – and the spice builds in a wave that crashes on an oaky shore. Vanilla there as well as weetbix-ey type malt notes. Finish: Finishes with a lingering spice and a touch of saltyness right at the end.
