A 2021 release from Tim Shed and a malt that launched their new Anomaly range:  Malts from Tin Shed that were somewhat different from the house style.  But the results were more than pleasing.

This anomaly in this case was with the filling of the cask at a very low 48% ABV.   But pleasingly the spirit survived  two to three years of maturation without being drenched in oak.

And for an Aussie malt, the use of Tasmanian peat worked a treat, it is just so noticeable, on a palate that is sweet and malty.

Official notes read, “An initial explosion of overwhelming flavours that settles down to sweet toffee and caramello chocolate once the smoke throttles back. The finish is very long and lingering buttery chocolate with a resurgence of the smoke towards the very end”.
