Age 12+ years - 47.5% abv - Aged in French Oak Port Casks • From McWilliams Winery in Hunter Valley, Australia • The casks originate from Limousin, France where they were filled with Port for 30 years.
The barrels are scraped and the scrapings are hung in a basked in the cask to re-char the barrel.
They use an older filtering system known as racking. Fresh distilled water is added to the matured barrels over a 2 to 3 week period. The barrels then sit for 3 months. During this period the fresh water aids in settling the sediment to the bottom. The Whisky is then “racked” or drawn off. The result is a creamier, fuller mouth, feel whisky.
