SULLIVANS COVE ‘Old & Rare’ American Oak ex-Bourbon (HH0310)


The single cask bottlings of Sullivans Cove Old & Rare are reserved for the very rare casks that the team allows to mature for at least sixteen years. The majority of their whiskies reach their peak at around 10-12 years, but from time to time, their distillers identify a cask with specific characteristics that allow for extended maturation. The result is the oldest and rarest Australian whiskies ever released. Old & Rare American Oak is matured for a minimum of sixteen years in American oak barrels previously used for aging bourbon. This single cask whisky offers incredible complexity and length on the palate; it is rich, woody, and extremely textured while retaining the unique brilliance and character of Sullivans Cove’s spirit. Winner of the “Best single malt single cask in the world” at the World Whiskies Awards in 2018. Each bottle is presented in a unique, handmade solid wood box and includes a hand-signed letter of authenticity by the master distiller, Heather Tillott. An incredible rarity and a significant milestone for both Sullivans Cove and the Australian whisky industry, these whiskies are a true piece of Australian whisky history. American Oak ‘Old & Rare’ Single Cask HH0310 was filled on May 19, 2000, and decanted on December 4, 2018, for a maturation of 18 years and 7 months. After such a long maturation, this 200-liter ex-bourbon American oak cask yielded only a minuscule number of bottles at 48% alcohol.
