Nant Single Malt Bourbon Cask Whisky 500ml (Tasmania)
Sharp & peppery on the nose, the flavours of the Nant Single Malt Bourbon Cask Whisky are balanced with light honey & vanilla. With dark fruits and malted oats, the vanilla notes from the bourbon cask are evident, warm and creamy. Finishing with touches of licorice and maple syrup, the soft sugars compliment a medium to long finish.
Just an hour from Hobart is the historic Nant Estate (circa 1821). Today it is the proud home to the Nant Distillery, producers of the internationally renowned Nant Single Malt Whisky.
In 2012, just four years after beginning commercial production, Nant Single Malt Whisky was catapulted to global renown when Jim Murray, the world’s foremost whisky commentator, scored Nant Single Malt Whisky – American Oak Bourbon Wood 95.5 out of 100. This rarest of scores saw Nant rated among the top 50 whiskies in the world.
‘Nant’, meaning ‘stream’, was the name given by the first Welsh settlers to both the Valley and the Estate. This very stream meanders through Nant Estate and flows into the millpond; that powers the wheel that turns the stones that grist the malted barley – that also gives its name to Australia’s only Highland Single Malt Whisky.
Both a source of power and a key ingredient in Nant’s success, these pristine waters trace their source upstream to the river Clyde, which is fed from a million-year-old glacial lake in the mystical Tasmanian Highlands.- Distillery Notes
