To celebrate(?) being back home I had three pretty rare Australian whiskies. The Sullivan’s Cove TD0060 is an important Australian whisky as it was the first whisky to be distilled and bottled under the ownership of Tasmania Distillery. Unfortunately, I was a little underwhelmed by it. There was no real complexity or depth, drinking alongside a 3 year old Timboon it really did not stand up. The Southern Coast, again for me drinks as some of Australia’s best whisky.
