Annoyingly my post on these two got deleted – I actually wrote something detailed for a change.
Anyway the upshot was these drams from “Wheaty Whisky” are their independent bottlings of Southern Coast Distilleries. This is seriously rare stuff from South Australia. As far as I am aware these drams are only available at The Wheatsheaf in Adelaide.
You can read the sad tale of Southern Coast here.
7 – Wheaty Whisky Cask #23 Port Cask bottle 5/60 (distilled by Southern Coast)
Huge maple syrup, really woody and leathery, musk. Woody, cream, butter, really long, slightly toasty and creamy – a really late brandy butter, coffee and rock melon note is surprising.
8 – Wheaty Whisky Cask Strength PX (distilled by Southern Coast)
Pine resin, maple syrup, French toast with blueberries, coffee, banana. Cream, wood, slight pipe tobacco note, slight milk chocolate, sarsaparilla and cola – quite light on the palate given the huge resiny nose.
