After the amazing response from an Oloroso Sherry sample in our first ever virtual event so we have decided to come back to this and theme this virtual tasting around sherry casks.
We’ve found some sherry casks in the bond store including a 30L French Oak PX Cask, another 35L French Oak Oloroso Cask, and a 200L Madeira Cask that is currently finishing a marriage of Apera matured whisky.
30L French Oak PX Sherry Cask
45ml @ 59.8%
35L French Oak Oloroso Sherry Cask
45ml @ 57.3%
225L Madeira Finishing Cask
45ml @ 58.2%
That is only three samples, the fourth is going to be a bit of a project for us.
We’ve recently taken delivery of some amazing 38L Ex-Bourbon Casks from two different distilleries, Bluebird, and Union Horse. We are going to include a sample from a 100L American Oak Ex-Bourbon cask. We feel the cask has just stopped ‘working’ (for us).
The plan is to decant this 100L cask into these smaller 38L casks, track their maturation over the next 6-12 months, then when we’re ready, pull samples and showcase them to discuss the differences each cask has had.
100L American Oak Ex-Bourbon
45ml @ 62.8%
We are firm believers here about making the casks work for us and it’s important to be able to recognise when they’re not, and do something about it.
While we aim for fun on these streams, it’s still nice to be able to chat about some technical aspects of our whisky and what we’re doing. I feel like this 100L decanting will prove to be a bit of fun, but gives us a fantastic opportunity to go into some of the finer details of casks and what they’re doing.
Hobart Whisky is bottled when it is deemed to be ready, by selling these small samples you will have a glimpse at our bond store and process.
We want this to be a bit of light-hearted fun and discussion, and as such be prepared for an array of samples. If you want to try something that is a little unique, then this is the perfect opportunity.
Every tasting pack sold will be allocated a ticket into the draw to win a 200ml limited bottling (1 of 3 bottles).
This month’s bottling is a 200ml bottle of the French Oak PX Sherry cask.
This will be drawn via the live stream and you will be contacted via email or phone, and it will be distributed directly from our distillery.
You do not need to be present on the stream to win.
