Old & Rare American Oak is matured for a minimum of sixteen years in American oak casks previously used to age bourbon.

Each bottle is presented in a unique, hand-made, solid wood presentation box and includes a letter of authenticity hand signed by our Head Distiller Heather Tillott.

American Oak ‘Old & Rare’ Single Cask HH0310 was filled on the 19th of May, 2000 and decanted on the 4th of December, 2018, for a maturation of 18 years, 7 months. After such a long maturation, this 200-litre American oak ex-bourbon cask yielded only a tiny number of bottles at 48% abv. As one of the oldest Australian single malt whiskies ever released, this bottling is a true piece of whisky history and has incredible texture, complexity and length of palate.
Nose : Raspberry and coconut slice elegantly rise out of the glass. Salted caramel, mango sorbet, marshmallows, banana smoothie, tapioca pudding. It's full of all the naughty (good) things. A lovely musky floral perfume, like Turkish Delight, with muffled jasmine. Mixed citrus breakfast juice (perhaps with a touch of Campari..?). Deliciously biscuitty.
Palate : Wondrous texture. Somehow captures the sweet and savoury elements of the grain in one. Citrus was hinted at on the nose and now comes to the forefront: orange, and then brighter grapefruit. The lolly mint leaves, icing sugar, and licorice all sorts. Walnuts, nutmeg, and an oily herb, like rosemary.
Overall : Musky vanilla, and musky banana. Custard, caramel, and loads of pastry which then turns biscuitty, like the base of a cheese cake. Walnuts, nutmeg, and the vanilla ice cream of your dreams. Really great length: sweet biscuits and raspberry jam.
