Bakery Hill Cask Strength Classic Single Malt
Bakery Hill // Victoria, Australia
From the mainland of Australia comes this cask strength single malt. Originally made with Australian Franklin malt, but now with Australian Schooner barley, the passion behind the craft gives this a taste of true, classic whisky. Matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels, as with all Bakery Hill whiskies it is non-chill filtered and has no added caramel coloring.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Wood smoke gives way to orange rind and some eucalyptus with some spice notes hanging in the back, present but evasive. The citrus is a zesty reminder that is present through the entire act of tasting. Beneath everything lies a slight hint of acetone, more noticeable if cut with water. There’s a pleasant vanilla taste in front of dark chocolate on the tongue which is sweeter than expected, though dismissed by the smoke and coal when they arrive. The finish is pleasantly long, very warming and peppery with some grass notes. "
