Highwayman Batch 2.0 ‘The Real 420’ Tawny Cask Single Malt Whisky 500ml 55%
Out of Stock
Highwayman’s second official single malt whisky release that yielded 100 bottles.
Region: Byron Bay, NSW
Cask type: FO/Tawny
Release Date: 1st of July 2021
The new chapter of Highwayman’s whisky library sees the unleashing of their second ever 100% Byron Bay single malt whisky created at Lord Byron Distillery.
Owner of Highwayman, Dan Woolley comments:
“4 x 20L French oak Tawny casks that were used to mature early Highwayman whisky batches were filled with Tawny after they were tipped of whisky. That Tawny was left to soak into the wood for over a year in the intense Byron climate before being tipped and refilled with Lord Byron unpeated spirit. This was left to mature for 25 months giving you a whisky that noses and tastes well beyond its age”.
“This is, without a doubt, the most well rounded, full bodied and perfectly balanced Highwayman whisky to date. Also, the first batch to be 100% produced, aged and bottled in Byron Bay”.
Each bottle is hand dipped in black wax and presented in a branded bottle bag. This second release sold out in under an hour on Highwayman’s website and Dan Woolly has sent a small allocation our way for our loyal supporters too.
