The Sullivans Cove Distillery, has announced the launch of a special limited-edition expression, as part of its 25th Anniversary celebrations.

Sullivans Cove 25th Anniversary Special Edition (49.6% ABV) was matured for over 21 years in American oak ex-bourbon casks.

Sullivans Cove 25th Anniversary Special Edition

Between 1994 and 1999, the founders of Sullivans Cove produced a total of 162 casks of whisky. All of these casks were thought to be lost to time; bottled and sold years ago in one form or another. But last year, a phone call from out of the blue led them to a warehouse in Hobart, where they discovered four casks of Sullivans Cove’s earliest single malt.

Considering the incredibly advanced age and resulting low volume of these casks, the small amount of remaining whisky in each was married together to create this special release, yielding a total of 502 bottles.

This latest release from the Tasmania based distillery, is said to deliver notes of sweet vanilla, musk, Maltesers, cinnamon, anise, dried apple, roasting pineapple, mixed berry jam and a whiff of ethereal perfume on the nose. Followed by notes of pineapple, passionfruit, honeydew melon, Chantilly cream, mixed berry jam, sweet pastry, vanilla custard, toffee and caramel fudge, on the palate.

Sullivans Cove 25th Anniversary Special Edition, is now available directly from the Sullivans Cove online store, for a RRP of $1800.00 AUS.
