Spring Bay ‘The Rheban’ Sherry Cask Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky 700ml 58%
Out of Stock
A rare cask strength, sherry cask release from Spring Bay Distillery that yielded 39 bottles.
Age: 2 years, 11 months
Region: Spring Beach, Tasmania
Cask type: Ex-Sherry Cask
Cask No: 89
Bottler: Spring Bay Distillery
Distilled: January 2017
Filled: December 2019
The whisky was laid to rest in a 50L McWilliams cask (medium toast) that yielded 39 bottles due to the angels share and a slight leak in the cask. As all things beautifully random about whisky making, the owners (Cam and Suzi Brett) believe the leak added to the sweetness and the intensity of the whisky.
We also 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, this Aussie gem won’t last long on our virtual shelves. 😉
Quick fact – The name of Spring Bay’s Rheban line of whisky 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.
