New World Projects: Baranows Selection #2 PX Cask
New World Projects // Victoria, Australia
From the New World Distillery in Melbourne, Australia, New World Projects is the experimental branch of the NW Distillery, which produces the more well-known Australian Single Malt Starward. Baranows Selection #2 comes from an ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry cask that had been re-coopered down to 50-liters. Filled at 55.7% ABV on March 4, 2011, the whisky left the barrel at 59.3% ABV on September 1, 2014. In just three and a half years, the angels had claimed over a quarter of the barrel, so only forty-four bottles could be filled from the remaining whisky.
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.
