That Boutique-y Whisky Company Baker Hill Australian Whisky 5 Year Old
Boutique-y Whisky have introduced an Australian Series into their range.
A smoky, peated, ex-bourbon cask, single malt from mainland Australia’s oldest whisky distillery.
Founded in 1999, Bakery Hill Distillery is run by ex-High School chemistry teacher David and his son Andrew. Family run, small batch, with a focus on quality over quantity. It was established to prove a point - that great single malt whiskies could be made outside of Scotland, and specifically in Australia.
Bakery Hill buck the trend of many wine-cask driven Australian whiskies, favouring predominantly ex-bourbon barrels. These allow for a longer maturation, without the spirit becoming overwhelmed by the hot temperatures and cask influence.
Nose: Sweet, creamy peat. A little medicinal with green banana.
Palate: Heading towards Islay, rich but light mouthfeel and sweet peat again.
