Nant Sherry Wood Single Cask Cask Strength
Nant Distilling Company // Tasmania, Australia
From the Tasmanian Highlands, the Nant Sherry Wood was drawn, as the name implies, from a single ex-Sherry cask and bottled at cask strength. Nant is part of a surge of new distilleries on Tasmania, the southern-most island in Australia, which is driving much of the distillation scene down under. The distillery uses 100% local Tasmanian Brewer's barley, one-third of which is grown on the estate. It also uses traditional pot stills (the only stills in Australia to use a Balvenie-esque onion-shaped refractor bulb) and quarter-casks. The Sherry Wood is bottled at the cask's strength of 63% ABV, is non-chill filtered, and contains no added 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.
