An oaky, smoky, cola-influenced single malt that plays on a cult classic, our Limited Release Chinotto Cask is an unexpected journey of zest and zeal.
In a moment of experimental creativity, Head Distiller Chris Thomson turned to a locally-made, Italian-style carbonated beverage, Chinotto, to season a selection of casks. Our spirit’s thick, smoky viscosity melded seamlessly with the sweet intensity of the Chinotto, creating an unconventional heavily-peated single malt with a Tasmanian-Italian heritage.
Nose: Thick and rich. Fresh vanilla beans, barley wine, and malted milkshakes. Sweet earthy peat and a fresh hint of lemon zest and Sassafras.
Palate: Hits sweet and spreads like warm oil. Gingerbread, charred citrus, cinnamon, wattleseed, cola, and an earthy hint of peat and toasted barley.
Finish: Finishes dry and sweet dominates the senses. Oak, coffee, cola, and wattleseed, with some lingering orange oil and dark chocolate.
