Description

A giant of Australian distilling or the pariah of those you loved good whisky?  As the distillery’s advertising tag-line used to say, “For that little bit of extra change in your pocket…”.

Opened 1929, closed 1980.

Read the full story of Corio distillery by Luke McCarthy at Oz Whisky Review here.

But here’s a snippet from a tasting note of Corio 5 Star, “This really stacks up against Scottish blends of the same era. The earlier bottlings definitely have more malt and grunt to them, little wonder it was so popular in the 1950s and 60s. Good drinking neat, but this would’ve made a great mixer as well”.

NB: Condition of bottle and packaging.  Plus the self-labelled date, that looks about right.
