Bakery Hill Peated Single Malt Whisky 500ml
Awards Southern Hemisphere Whisky of the Year 2020 (Jim Murray's Whisky Bible)
With a colour of rich gold russet, the Bakery Hill Peated Single Malt Whisky has a rich subdued peat aroma combined with a natural leathery earthiness with overtones of kumquat and fruit mince tart. Sweet but not sickly its palate reveals a tobacco leaf earthiness with layer upon layer of complex smoky peat that lingers on the lips and palette demanding just one more sip. The finish is long and complex with an exotic mix of experiences.
Our Peated Single Malt, delivered straight from the cask is our “biggest” and most awarded whisky in our range. In fact it is one of the biggest Australian whiskies available today.
The malted barley is “peated” in northern Scotland and exhibits a more “Highland” style peat, which produces an “earthier” rounded peat smoke with minimal “medicinal/iodine” notes.
Milling of the grain, brewing and distilling is then conducted in our Melbourne distillery, before maturing in American Oak ex-bourbon barrels from Jack Daniels for up to 8 years. Single barrel maturation to ensure you get every ounce of flavour without blending.
We have deliberately kept the peating level to a low/medium amount to ensure balance and to encourage the other sweeter flavour profiles to shine through.
All of the nose and flavour profiles of the Peated Single Malt are here but ramped up to 11, without dilution, so you can enjoy the whisky as you see fit. Perhaps with a couple of drops of water before indulging. – Distillery Notes
