OCD WHISKEY LIMITED EDITION BARREL 05 - 500ml
Single Malt. Single Cask.
X Pinot Cask re coopered to 50 litre with a mid to heavy charring from Tasmanian Cask Company, the new make in the this barrel was the first time that Eduard had converted from his small (90 litre) individual mashing at home to a larger format.
Joining forces with Dad and Dave brewing Eduard met with Dave very early one morning to mash in and produce 1000 litres of un-fermented mash before driving it home to pitch, little did Eduard realise that this was the start of how things would be moving forward!.
Sitting for 2 weeks patiently fermenting so started the process of distilling the 1000 litres, 70 litres at a time, 16 of these strip runs and 2 spirit runs is how this cask was conceived - and now some 30 months later born!
Tasting Notes & Aroma:
Nose: Honey-dipped milk biscuits, crushed almonds and dried apricots share the bouquet with late aromas of red currents, fresh berry compote with vanilla bean and the faintest hint of cola and old wood-cellar at the cusp.
Palate: Strawberry shortcake and sweet vanilla arrive first before the fruitiness of the pinot bursts on to the palate with the addition of sunflower seeds, wet tobacco leaf and cracked pepper.
Finish: Dry, nutty and lingering with a little citrus and a sweet toffee note.
