Nant Sherry Wood Single Cask Single Malt
Nant // Tasmania, Australia
From the island of Tasmania comes the much celebrated Nant Sherry Wood. Just outside of Hobart and built in 1821, Nant has been producing whisky just a little after purchasing the estate in 2004 where the distillery is located. The grain is currently sourced from nearby Bothwell, although plans to grow the grain on the estate are in development. The grain is ground by the original 19th century mill stone that is powered by the stream that gives Nant its name. Matured in an American oak ex-sherry casks. Note: the bottles are sold in 500 ml size and is currently not available 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.
Cask TypeAmerican oak ex-sherry
"Sherry and dried stone fruits are noticeable on the nose, with an aroma of a cabinet full of nuts, spices and figs reminiscent of an older time. On the tongue, old books and tobacco soaked in sherry are present, along with hand-rolled cigarettes, citrus, toffee, and sweet vanilla. Impeccably smooth with a woody, nutty tobacco finish this is a very easy drinking whisky. "
