Our tasting notes.
Full bodied, nicely complex and viscous. The whisky drinks more like a 50%+ ABV which is testament to Chantal and Sam’s whisky making nous that has Kinglake kicking goal after goal for such a young distillery.
Kinglake Ex- Tawny ‘French Oak’ Single Malt Whisky 500ml 46%
The first ever whisky by Kinglake aged in French Oak that yielded 380 bottles.
Region: Kinglake, Victoria
Cask type: French Oak/Ex-Tawny
Bottler: Kinglake Distillery
Distilled: 24th of April 2019
Bottled: 15th of August 2022
Authenticated by the Distiller: 10th of September 2022
A new edition to Kinglake’s core range, this whisky was aged full-term (for 3 years) in ex-tawny port French oak barrels. The team at Kinglake have managed to offer this whisky @ $100 per bottle adding to the ‘market correction’, or renaissance (if you will) of the pricing of Australian whisky. The result is an easy drinking whisky with beautiful depth and spice.
The Distillery comments;
“A fantastic contrast to our soft, sweet, ex-bourbon aged single malt, this whisky is rich, dry and spicy”
