What treat from one of the past greats of modern Aussie distilling…
Southern Coast Distillers 2008 7yo Port TOWC Cask 21
Here’s what I wrote many years ago when we got this bottled for TOWC. What a treat it is to see Southern Coast back in bottle. The company has gone but soon to rise in another guise but this is the original and from what I tasted it certainly lives up to its now legendary reputation.
This well aged Aussie is a treat. I wouldn’t bottle it if it wasn’t!
Big dark and brooding in colour classic SCD nose that is so lush and sweet and so well balanced. Once again SCD’s famed SA Cooperage American oak casks that have had Aussie port in them come up a treat: Long palate intense alcohol, well integrated oak and barley that leave a the palate sweetly malty and oaky with a good dash of mandarin flavours.
What treat from one of the past greats of modern Aussie distilling.
