Tiger Snake Sour Mash Whiskey (5th Batch)
Tiger Snake // Western Australia, Australia
Tiger Snake Sour Mash is the brainchild of the Limeburners distillery, and Australia first legal sour mash. A bourbon at heart, legality issues prevent the whiskey (spelled with an “e” to denote the American-style) from being called such. Limeburners has made the whiskey using a mix of corn, rye and malted barley, and each bottle is individually numbered in the batch that it was released in. This sour mash has raised the bar for Australians, the first batch winning a medal from the Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania.

"The sour mash opens early with a bouquet of flowers laced with vanilla-soaked hazelnut, fragrant grass tones and smoky sweetness. That flowery vanilla almost all but dominates, but malts come through to break the mold. The same hazelnut and vanilla on the nose makes another appearance on the tongue, this time accompanied by zesty citrus rinds and a mint twist. The grass has turned to hay, with fruity malts joining the flowers. The finish is sweet with a medium and creamy body; a satisfying ending that builds in intensity to a cliffhanger that begs another taste. "
