Release date: 29th of April 2020
This is the fourth release from the (independent bottling) liquid library of Dan Woolley’s extensive, global whisky adventures that was aged at Lord Byron Distillery in Byron Bay. From all around our great country of Australia, spirit has made its way on the highway to Byron Bay to age in the rarest, hand selected oak casks to mature into Highwayman single malt whisky
The fourth release sees a much more wine driven maturation. A small American oak ex tawny and a small French oak super heavy char ex dry red wine cask are married together post-aging and given a second maturation in an American oak ex South Australian Shiraz cask. Unfiltered and bottled at cask strength, each bottle is numbered and signed with handwritten details on the back label. Bottle necks are hand dipped in black wax and presented in a branded bottle bag.
This release also sold out in under 10 minutes on the Lord Byron website and we’ve decided to open and sample every expression that Dan creates for our own individual tasting notes. Check them out below.
