Official tasting notes.
Aromas of mocha, blood orange and fresh ripe peach with a hint of toasted marshmallow. On the palate, decadent flavours of dark chocolate orange, meringue and salted caramel evolve into an elegant finish of almond croissant and vanilla custard.
The Remnant Whisky Company – ‘Fly By Night’ Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky 700ml 45%
Second release Independent Bottling
Region: From Bothwell to Kempton, Tas
Cask type: Bourbon and Apera
Release date: December 2020
Here’s the second independent bottling release from The Remnant Whisky company that was formed in January 2020 by Peter Bignell (Belgrove Distillery), his son Dane, and their associates. Together, they bought nearly 300 full barrels of Nant whisky from investors stung by the failed buy-back scheme under the previous owner of Nant, and put together a rescue deal to purchase the barrels, setting out to blend and bottle whisky that almost never saw the light of day.
The result is ‘Fly By Night’, a marriage of first-fill bourbon and Apera cask whisky that the creators say “will set the standard for our future offerings, we think it’s a ——- belter and we trust you will too.
