The name of Spring Bay’s inaugural cask strength release, ‘Rheban’, is derived from the majestic 1500-acre sheep station just south of the distillery that overlooks Maria Island and the untamed and seductive Rheban beach.
The whisky was laid to rest in 5 x 20L, premium ex-port French Oak casks that yielded 25 bottles each and then bottled at a cask strength of 58%alc. We love the super-refreshing fact that the distillery is releasing their whisky in 700ml bottles which is a real rarity these days, and been a small batch, cask strength expression – these Aussie gems won’t last long on our virtual shelves.
Would make a great after dinner pour with a quality cigar.
