    North Star Caol Ila 12-Year-Old

    North Star Caol Ila 12-Year-Old

    A single cask from Islay’s Caol Ila juggernaut, bottled by North Star.

    This was distilled April 2006 and bottled May 2018 at 54.6%, with 276 bottles in the outturn.

    Matured in a refill hogshead, this has let the spirit shine – the citrus and coastal smoke massaged, not whalloped.

    Official tasting notes:

    Nose: An Oligarch’s humidor… a big dusty one.

    Palate: A peated sherbet lemon doubled dunted with a peated sour ploom.

    Finish: Reminds me of well-seasoned hardwood burning near a new carpet… all subjective of course.

    North Star is a Glasgow-based independent bottler run by Iain Croucher, and this comes from their fifth series of releases. All their whiskies are natural colour and un-chill filtered.

    North Star Macduff 11-Year-Old

    North Star Macduff 11-Year-Old

    A single cask from the Macduff highland distillery which boasts a sweet maltiness against the distillery’s classic floral notes.

    Distilled in November 2006 and matured in a refill bourbon hogshead, there are 240 bottles in the release at cask strength 55.2%.

    Macduff is a distillery primarily used to create stock for blends, there are a few single malts on the market under the Glen Deveron – or straight Deveron – name, but the name does appear on a few independent bottled expressions.

    Official tasting notes:

    Nose: Red apple and that smell you get when rain hits hot tarmacadam. (Yes! But we reckon the floral note is also there – OB team.)

    Palate: Instantly creamy and sweet, like my mum’s custard.

    Finish: The crispy topping on a crème brulee.

    North Star Glentauchers 11-Year-Old

    North Star Glentauchers 11-Year-Old

    A single cask, sherry-finished whisky from the Glentauchers distillery in the highlands.

    Distilled in April 2007 and initially matured in an ex-bourbon cask, it was finished in a PX ex-sherry barrel. 288 bottles at 58.9%.

    Built in 1897, Glentauchers is currently owned by Chivas Brothers, who use it for their Ballentine’s blend (it has been key parts of Black & White and Teachers throughout its history as ownership changed hands). The distillery’s mash tun is stainless steel, with wash backs made from Oregon pine. It is mostly run mechanically these days, but in a traditional method, so that people can learn the techniques.

    Official tasting notes:

    Nose: My Gran’s syrup sponge pudding.

    Palate: Thick cream, condensed milk just before the tablet sets.

    Finish: Touch of aniseed with a delicate sherry coating.

    Tasmanian Independent Bottlers Old Kempton Release 5

    Tasmanian Independent Bottlers Old Kempton Release 5

    A single cask whisky from Tasmania’s Old Kempton distillery, bottled by Tasmanian Independent Bottlers.

    Originally launched as a paddock-to-bottle distillery, Redlands is now located at the historic Dysart House, in Kempton. As cheekily evidenced on the label, the distillery is now called Old Kempton. The distillery has a sweet new make spirit working well with big, sweet wine casks.

    Cask TIB RD 014 was an ex-muscat cask, bottled August 2018 at 48%. A particularly tasty expression, it’s sweet, with red fruit fragrances and is very drinkable.

    Tasmanian Independent Bottlers is a new venture, driven by the team behind Heartwood – Australia’s best known indie bottler. Casting their net beyond the home state, TIB will look to bottle accessible single malts and spirits from across Australia. Avoiding the natural cask strength tendencies of Heartwood (which have topped 70% in the past), TIB releases will be offered between 46% and 50% ABV.

    Although the TIB label did appear previous for a private bottling, the late 2017 launch is considered the ‘first’ official bottlings for the label.

    Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt

    Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt

    The Rare Cask is a premium expression from the Speyside giant created from sherry-seasoned American and European oak casks.

    Offered at natural colour, a high-proportion of first-fill casks give Rare Cask its vibrant, red colour. Rare Cask was released as part of the 1824 series, a range of expressions that didn’t carry an age statement but instead were determined by colour. Whiskies like Amber, Ruby and Sienna were part of 1824.

    Official tasting notes:

    Nose: Soft notes of opulent vanilla and raisin give way to a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon, and orange. All balanced by a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

    Palate: This spicy quartet are unwavering. Oak resonates, timeless, polished and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest.

    Finish: Warming and woody.

    Official tasting notes:

    Nose: Reminiscent of a fine fragrance with vanilla ice cream, fresh cut oak and delicate florals. Orange oil provides subtle grandeur while ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg flit in and out. Vanilla imparts sweetness with citrus fruits at the fore before allowing chocolate to come through. Burnished oak delivers a soft ending.

    Palate: Sweet fruit, vanilla and rich fruit cake with hints of apricot, pear and crisp green apple. Ginger and cinnamon are balanced with a light resinous oak finale.

    Finish: Long, sweet and fruity.

    Hakushu 18-Year-Old Limited Edition

    Hakushu 18-Year-Old Limited Edition

    The limited edition, specially packaged Hakushu 18-Year-Old which has never been officially been released to regular Australian retail.

    Hakushu is the heavier, slightly smokym whisky in Suntory's arsenal, although like most Japanese distilleries it produces a wide-range of styles. In the Hibiki blends, it is Hakushu that gives the blend its structure and length.

    Writing for Whisky Advocate, the veritable Dave Broom wrote:

    "Unlike their collegues in Scotland, Japanese distillers do not exchange stock for their blending requirements. This means that each distillery is set up to produce a wide range of styles.

    "Hakushu uses four different types of malt (unpeated to heavy) run through four pairs of differently-shaped stills. Each single malt is a different blend of these bases. While still herbal, this example shows more sherried notes along with sour orange zest, tropical fruit, and some smoke.”

    Bowmore 15-Year-Old Single Cask Douglas Laing Old Particular

    Bowmore 15-Year-Old Single Cask Douglas Laing Old Particular

    A single cask from Islay’s Bowmore distillery, bottled by Douglas Laing for their premium Old Particular series.

    This 15-year-old was a crowd favourite at the 2018 Sydney Whisky Fair. Distilled December 2001 and bottled June 2017, the refill hogshead yielded 321 bottles at a very pleasant 48.4%.

    Founded in 1779 Bowmore is one of the most historic distilleries in Scotland, let alone on the small island of Islay.

    It remains one of the few distilleries with its own malting floors, which produces an estimated 30 percent of their overall need. Both the house-produced malt and the rest sourced from the mainland are peated to approximately 25 PPM.

    Bowmore is the main town of Islay and is held close to the heart of many visitors as it has the most amount of accommodation and is close to the island’s small airport (although nothing is far away on Islay). 

    Official tasting notes:

    Nose: Surprisingly sweet with distant coal dust, develops to burnt home-baking and cinnamon.

    Palate: Rich, still sweet and spice with soft peat smoke developing alongside the oily character.

    Finish: Long and oily with damp bonfire ashes building through the sweetness.
