The Limeburners Sherry Cask Single Malt is a fascinating small batch single malt and a special addition to the Australian whisky canon. It is distilled in the small Western Australian town of Albany using exclusively southern Australian barley and a combination of soft and hard waters collected from nearby limestone aquifers.
While billed as a sherry cask, this single malt is actually matured in second-fill bourbon barrels before being finished for an unspecified amount of time in Australian sherry casks. This means that while the sherry hints are there, they are not as powerful as some other sherry-cask single malts.
There is no age statement but Limeburners typically ages its casks for between three and nine years. Each bottle of the Sherry Cask is individually numbered highlighting the fact that this is a small batch production and a special addition to any whisky collection. While this is a fairly mild whisky, there is plenty going on under the hood. To get the most out of it, serve this one with just a splash of water to bring out the flavours.
