The Heartwood ‘2nd Moment of Truth’ expression has Tim Duckett channelling his thirst for innovation by rewriting the rule book on what an independent bottler can truly be, by blending new-make spirit from different Australian distilleries (with permission of course) in his quest to find what Tim calls a “more complete spirit”.
This bottling represents the first time any Australian bottler has married new-makes with Tim choosing spirit from Fleurieu and Fannys Bay and then ageing the blended spirit in a 30yo apera cask/60yo sherry cask, and 30yo apera cask/70yo Topaque cask.
Tim Duckett comments;
“It’s a really unique process in itself as I want to produce something like a single cask vatted malt, however instead of the vatted malt been a mixture of whiskies as it is traditionally, it will be a mixture of new makes”
