Shene Estate Mackey Apera Cask Whisky #3 700ml (Tasmania)
Antique Gold in colour, the Shene Estate Mackey Tasmanian Single Apera Cask has a nose of Sweet bees' wax polish and floral tones. Hints of banana custard and poached figs. The palate is lovely thick and velvety opening up to some delicate and sweet tropical fruit notes before magically transitioning to the classic spicy apera cask finish. The middle to back palate transfer is a delightful segway from the floral and fruity confectioner's bench to the zesty pantry spices that leave a wonderful peppery tingle and have you yearning for another dram of this beguiling sherry cask beauty. The finish is sweet sherbert and white pepper in a brilliant combo. Long, lingering and luscious.
During the course of 2015, the old hayshed at Shene Estate was rebuilt to accommodate the Shene Estate Distillery. Nestled within the estate’s magnificent heritage precinct, the distillery will give new life to old buildings, and ensure their heritage values are retained and supported into the future. Inside, the distillery is state of the art but externally it will marry perfectly with the estate’s historic character. A showcase of rare trades.
Shene Estate & Distillery’s products reflect the merging of the old and new. Our aim is to create spirits which are infused with new flavours and experiences, but preserve the essence of traditional distillation practices.
We use only copper pot stills made by Tasmania’s own master still-maker Peter Bailly, and our techniques are those that have remained largely unchanged for centuries.
