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

  • Bottle Size : 700ml

DISTILLERS NOTES

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!

Cheers,
Ian Schmidt – Tin Shed Distilling Co

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

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY

Tin Shed Distillery was established in 2010 by Ian Schmidt and long time drinking buddy Vic Orlow. Ian is a straight talker with little time for fake extravagances – and his distillery certainly reflects this attitude. From the unassuming front door, through to the utilitarian stacks and rows of ageing whisky, to the small stills – this is grassroots craft whisky at it’s finest!

There’s no ‘Visitors Centre’ here (although Ian welcomes visitors by appointment) – the distillery is the visitors centre. What you get is plain and simple – almost spartan. A distillery, bond store, bottling plant and office all under one roof. It’s all about the whisky at Tin Shed Distilling.

LAunceston Distillery Apera Cask

What Tin Shed Distilling lacks in size, flashyness or ‘pomp’ it certainly makes up for in the quality of it’s whisky. Ian and Vic’s philosophy is ‘only bottle what we like to drink’ – and the results of this attitude were apparent from day one. The very first batch of Iniquity made Jim Murray’s ‘Liquid Gold’ list in 2015 with a score of 94 – he described it as “a gorgeous experience”. Iniquity Batch 003 received a Gold Medal at the 2018 World Whisky Awards – when it was only two years old!. They have grown used to the accolades since then, with each year bringing more medals and accolades from near and far!

Whilst awards are great, with a distillery as small as Tin Shed, they don’t drive sales. As Ian puts it – “by the time the results are out, we’ve sold all of the whisky we entered”. What’s more important to the boys at Iniquity is feedback from ‘the Den’ (the Iniquity members club) and the drinking public at whisky shows. Love this, then join Iniquity’s ‘the Den’ and stay up to date with all new Iniquity releases and everything that’s happening at Tin Shed Distilling.
