Launceston 20th Release Tawny Cask Matured Cask Strength H17-20 Single Malt Whisky 500ml 63.5%
The 20th release, straight from Hanger 17 that yielded 204 bottles.
Age: 2.5 years
Region: Western Junction, Tasmania
Batch No: H17-20
Cask type: FO/Tawny
Bottler: Launceston Distillery
This rich, robust whisky was matured for 2 ½ years in small French oak tawny casks, vatted and then allowed to “marry” together before bottling. A winter warmer, this full flavoured whisky was double distilled and is non-chill filtered to retain depth of character, all combines to create one of Launceston’s most approachable cask strength tawny release to date!
Everything happens under the roof of the historic Hanger 17 at Launceston Airport.
