Limeburners Single Malt Port Cask
Limeburners // Western Australia, Australia
Limeburners is producing Western Australia's first single malts at the time of writing, and they have been doing a mighty fine job of it. The port cask variant is made with Western Australian barley, is copper pot-distilled then matured in an American ex-bourbon cask. It is finished in an Australian-style port cask. Limeburners are non-chill filtered and have no added caramel-coloring, giving them an authentic taste from a sun-burnt country. Note: This is not sold in the US.
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.

"Fresh orange citrus overtones and spices, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom, the whisky drops into toasted malts, slight acetone notes and reminiscent of grandmother's wine cabinet. Dark plums, raisins and cherry wood bring about the end of a succulent whisky. On the tongue, the whisky is sugary sweet, the orange tones from nose turning prickly and the cinnamon becoming more prevalent. The initial taste is prickly alcohol, dying down to a cloying mouth feel. The finish is long, cloying, with sweet citrus fruits and pear, creamy caramel and honey bring about a marvelous end to the whisky. "
