Backwoods Distilling Co. Batch #5 Apera Cask Single Malt Whisky 500ml 58%
Backwoods final release for 2021 – Sold out at the distillery.
Age: Approx. 3-years-old
Region: Yackandandah, Victoria
Batch No: 5
Cask Type: Apera (sherry)
Bottling Date: 21st of September 2021
Already a sell-out at the distillery, the Backwoods team have used three varieties of Australian grown and malted barley in their mashbill before laying the new-make spirit to rest in ex-Apera casks. Chatting with Leigh and Bree Atwood (owners and distillers), they comment; “We matured the whisky for 2 years at a cask strength of 63.5% ABV. We then added water and brought it down to 58% ABV and gave it another year in the cask. We find that ageing at two ABV’s adds complexity”
The distillery decided to release two different ABV’s for this Batch #5 at 58% alc and another at 48% alc (also available on our virtual shelves).
The distillery’s small batch whiskies are incredibly popular and always sell out, so be quick with these beauties because we have some of the only stock available in Australia.
