With just a smidge of Scottish Peat used to give the barley a smoky taint, this whisky has been aged in 200 litre American oak, ex tawny port barrels.
1881 refers to when it all ‘kicked off’ with illicit distilling in the Timboon area.
The balanced, whispy peat gets sent to the back of your palate whilst you develop a slightly savoury/cinnamon mouth feel. On the nose you will get tawny cask florals, apricot & maybe fruit cake aromas. Your palate will find savoury, slightly salty & earthy tones with a classic, slightly Scottish heritage finish of wispy, smoke & spice.
