Producer’s tasting notes
Richness and intensity of spice is huge. A Christmas minced pie with growing caramel and pudding.
Rochfort Single Malt Whisky – Maxwell Mead Cask 700ml 55%
Matured in an American Oak cask that yielded 100 bottles.
Region: South Australia
Cask type: American Oak, Ex-Bourbon
Bottler: Rochfort Distillery
Release Date: March/April 2019
Now here’s a unique Australian single malt whisky from the Rochfort Distillery in South Australia.
With this Maxwell Mead Cask expression, the new-make spirit was matured in a cask that was originally a bourbon cask from Jim Beam. It was emptied in Australia and then filled with spiced fortified mead made from Maxwells Honey sitting for 48 years on the cask.
The original mead contained up to 18 spices, so expect an intense whisky with plenty of spice and bite.
