Rich and smooth, Port Cask 43% is a core range Limeburners expression exhibiting the decadent result of spending time in Australian Port Casks.
Handcrafted at their distillery on the edge of Princess Royal Harbour, this whisky was first aged in ex-bourbon American oak before maturing further in a Port cask. Prior to bottling Great Southern Distilling Co hydrate this whisky with pure water to bring it to an approachable 43%.
The result is an exceptionally smooth and morish whisky, tasting of caramelised port wine raisins, stewed plums, and fresh nutmeg.
As each barrel will exhibit its own unique characteristics, creating slight variation from barrel to barrel, Great Southern Distilling Co utilise a solera system whereby several casks are emptied to a large holding tank and left to marry. Half of the blended batch is then sent for filtering and bottling, and the remaining half is retained and the blending tank is topped up with new barrels. Adopting this approach ensures there is a consistency of their products from batch to batch.
The average age of this product is 5 to 8 years.
