A piece of sullivans cove history
Our second Special Cask release (cask TD0231) comes from a 200 litre American Oak cask previously filled with Australian tawny fortified wine.
This cask strength, single cask bottling comes in at 63.8% ABV and produced only 186 bottles.
At 9 years old, this whisky is an absolute beast, the opposite of our first Special Cask release. Dark, rich and hugely powerful, this is a whisky for the port-and-oak-bomb lovers, and anyone wanting to experience Sullivans Cove at cask strength.
‘We were really happy to discover the risk we took filling this cask 9 years ago has paid off. We had no idea this type of cask would mature into such a good whisky – rich, creamy, full of flavour and beautifully different from our usual casks. I wish we filled more at the time!’
Patrick Maguire, Head Distiller
