Description

There’s a serious buzz in the American single malt world at the moment, and a lot of it is being led by Distillery 140. Those who tasted the recent 140.4 Throws you curve balls will know what I’m talking about here, but this .6 is again on that level. A Texan single malt that tastes like thick rhubarb jam on toast, caramel pudding, sweet cigar ash, and pine needles in an American sauna. This cask was already well-enjoyed by Melbourne members at a recent Independence Day tasting, why let them have all the fun? Do it. This is a game-changer.

We had freshly baked, still warm from the oven, tahini beetroot bread with dark cherry jam together with rhubarb crumble and custard. On the palate neat, dry charred oak at first before turning sweeter like hot spicy chilli chocolate flakes on a vanilla caramel pudding with a sweet cigar tobacco finish. A drop of water and we were enjoying an ‘Aufguss experience’ in a brand new Finnish-style sauna pouring water infused with pine needle essential oil over the hot stones. To taste, juicy, fruity orange cake but now with a very pleasant dry wood spice and a hint of leather – very moreish!
