BELLWETHER WHISKY – Release No 5 (350ml)
$85.00 (Inc. GST & Shipping)
BELLWETHER Peated Single Malt Whisky R5
This current bottling is Bellwether’s fifth release. The previous four releases totalling 820 half bottles, plus a couple of limited cask strength bottlings all sold quickly.
Bellwether’s fifth release comprises 131 half bottles, is non-chill filtered and bottled at 45.8% alc. This whisky is from a dedicated single cask distilled in June 2014, and matured in small French oak ex Tawny (Aust. Port) casks. The whisky displays a lighter more golden hue than previous releases. Aromas of sweet fruit and caramel plus the obligatory peat smoke are evident. With a drop of water, the whisky opens up to reveal ripe fruit and some grassy malt. This single cask whisky was produced using predominantly heavily peated (up to 50ppm phenols) malted barley giving distinct phenolic notes of tar, and peat smoke balanced by sweet fruit flavours from the Australian tawny cask. It finishes long with sweet fruit, smoke, tar, spice, and grassy malt.
