This whisky is made from Australian barley and matured in used apera casks. Apera is a style of fortified Australian wine similar to sherry. The result is a very well made spirit that shows fig, banana, toffee apple, marzipan, and vanilla characteristics. The spirit has some weight on the palate and an elegant mix of toffee, cigar box, dried fruit, and nuts notes on the palate. Very well worth trying for the malt lover looking for a new world twist on a very well established (and very widely loved) style of malt whisky.
