Official tasting notes.
Nose: Sweet, creamy peat. A little medicinal with green banana.
Palate: Heading towards Islay, rich but light mouthfeel and sweet peat again. Really well-made spirit.

What do you get when That Boutique-y Whisky Company joins forces with the chaps at Bakery Hill….? A glorious, smoky, ex-bourbon cask, single malt from mainland Australia’s oldest and most consistent whisky distillery is what you get – with a signature ‘Boutique-y’ twist! Using Highland peated malt from Scotland, and laid to rest in American Oak ex Bourbon barrels, this has ‘winner’ written all over it, and rightly so.
About the Label:
David Baker in his Walter White style ‘tighty whities’ is absolutely hilarious. Hehe!
That Boutique-y Whisky Company says it best.
“An ex-high school chemistry teacher turned distiller gave us the perfect opportunity to get a ‘Breaking Bad’ theme to this label. We’ve set the scene in the Australian outback, and the Winnebago is full of casks. Founder David Baker has a spirit thief in his hand, and son Andrew is in the hazmat suit. Andrew seems to be stamping on an old miner’s licence. It’s a historical reference to the Eureka Stockade in 1854 in a place called Bakery Hill”.
