Finish 01: XO Cognac is ready to ship
Finish 02: Shiraz Wine is ready to ship
Finish 03: Agave Spirit – September 2022
Finish 04: Cherry Gin – October 2022

This limited collection includes four unique whiskies, each aged in a single and distinctly flavoured barrel. We developed this series by adding matured premium reserve grade NED Whisky in barrels that have previously housed XO Cognac, Shiraz Wine, Agave Spirit and Cherry Gin.

The expressions from each barrel have given each whisky a unique complexity of flavour, depth and character.

This collection is the first time we’ve released whisky from a single barrel, making it our smallest release to date.

Each bottle is individually numbered.

TASTING NOTES:

Finish 01: XO Cognac 

We bottled rare, XO French Cognac in our new American oak casks and matured it until the wood was redolent with rich orange, apricot fruit and mellow cognac toffees before adding our NED Whisky for a final maturation in this cognac seasoned barrel. This whisky is a truly unique drop, balancing the structure of NED and the sweetness from the XO Cognac cask.

Aroma: Fragrant dried fruit, raisins and sultanas, caramel.
Taste: Sweet ripe fruit, notes of grapes and raisins, fine oak, dried spice.
Finish: Lingering mouthfeel/long finish of toffee.

500ml | 46%

Finish 02: Shiraz Wine

We secured a Shiraz Wine barrel from our friends at Mount Langi Ghiran Vineyard in Victoria. We filled it with a carefully selected barrel of our premium NED Whisky that was rich and bold in caramel and vanilla, with a soft finish and mellow profile to help balance out any tannins. This whisky captures the glorious fruit and weight of Victorian Shiraz and we believe this to be our smoothest and richest NED Whisky released to date.

Aroma: Vibrant fruit, raspberry and caramel.
Taste: Fine oak, dried spice and strawberry.
Finish: A long soft finish of mellow oak and smooth shiraz.

500ml | 44%

Finish 03: Agave Spirit 

Our distillers estimate this whisky will be ready for shipment in September 2022. 

Our Australian Agave Project used a NED second fill American oak barrel to age their foundation harvest for 20 months to create an exceptional Anejo spirit. After this was harvested, we re-filled this barrel with a NED reserve grade whisky that had strong flavours of extra vanilla and oak. Our NED Agave Spirit finish is pulling through beautiful roasted agave flavours and citrus notes.

Aroma: Fresh citrus, complex floral notes and toffee.
Taste: A balance of sweet and citrus from the agave, with fine oak and spice.
Finish: A smooth finish with amazing florals starting to emerge.

500ml | ABV to be determined once this whisky has reached maturation

Finish 04: Cherry Gin 

Our distillers estimate this whisky will be ready for shipment in October 2022. 

Our friends at Anther Gin used a NED second fill American oak barrel to age their Cherry Gin. After this was harvested, we selected a NED reserve whisky that had a structure of savoury oak and spice to re-fill this barrel, this was to ensure the whisky stands up to the sweetness of the cherries. This whisky is still in maturation, our distillers are waiting for it to hit the sweet spot between complex oak and sweet cherry aromatics. At present, this whisky is tasting of mellow oak, wood sweetness and hints of juniper and citrus.

Aroma: Complex whisky and oak with cherries and juniper.
Taste: Starting with cherries and juniper and moving into spicy botanicals and oak.
Finish: Juniper and dark chocolate with plenty of oak and classic whisky notes.
