This whisky was a pleasant surprise. Distilled at the Yalumba vineyard in the Barossa, South Australia as an experiment. The distillery has only produced three runs and has been silent for the last few years. There are no plans to recommence distilling, which is a shame as the results of the experiment are rather interesting. There is an unusual brandy and apple flavour, but with excellent wood flavours throughout. If you ever see it then grab a bottle. When it's gone, it's gone.
Calliope described the whisky as vanilla slice with passion fruit icing. Apparently this is not something that I would spot because I'm a Pom.
