Heartwood’s 2nd rye whisky following on from Heartgrove #1, of Belgrove origin that yielded 196 bottles.
Cask type: Muscat, Sherry.
Spirit type: Rye
Cask No: PB052
Bottled: 7th of February 2020
This expression follows on from Tim Duckett’s first ever rye release, Heartgrove #1. Aptly named Heartgrove #2, the name pays homage to the collaboration between the Heartwood brand and Peter Bignell’s Belgrove distillery.
Heartgrove #2 was bottled just under 4 months after #1 for what Tim calls “an extra sherry barrel boost that is completely different to the first release. It had a tortured past, being decant 4 times, leaks, tannins and also not knowing how to manage a rye whisky”
With the master of Australian Rye whisky; Peter Bignell (owner of Belgrove Distillery) providing the rye new-make to the most skilled Australian Independent Bottler in the country; Tim Duckett – it really is a match made in whisky-heaven.
Strictly 1 per person
