Sullivans Cove American Oak Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Sullivans Cove has been distilling single malt whisky in Australia's Tasmania region since 1994. Using all local barley, local water, and no additional coloring, their whiskies are finally making the long trek from down under to the United States. The American Oak expression is a full proof, spicy and richer version of the Doublewood that gets its flavor from ex-Bourbon casks. There's more sweetness from the wood and heavier vanilla accents. The price may seem a bit high at first, but it's actually line priced with similar American craft whiskies of the same age. Anchor charges $100 for their 11 year old rye and that doesn't need to be exported and shipped thousands of miles over seas. Sullivans Cove brings a view of what our craft whisky movement may look like a decade from now.
