Morris Rutherglen Smoked Muscat Barrel Finished Single Malt Australian Whisky 700ml
The team behind Morris Distillery has over six generations of craftsmanship in winemaking, blending and aging passed down through bloodline. This has allowed them to really master the production of the truly remarkable flavour in their Australian Single Malt Whisky.
This limited release Smoked Muscat expression brings together three unique elements; Single Malt Whisky, award-winning fortified Muscat barrels, and heavily-charred oak, to create a whisky with unrivalled complexity and unique depth of character. Born from a collaboration between our Head Distiller and Head Cooper, they pushed the boundaries of experimenting with the barrel-charring process. The resulting whisky is the perfect marriage of dry-biscuit maltiness, rich luscious raisin fruits, soft wood-aged characters and a lingering subtle smokiness.
On the nose a combination of clean white smoke mingling with raisin fruits and blackberry jam initially. The smoke dissipates to release the rich and complex Morris Muscat characters. On the palate are hints of charred pineapple with a light dusting of smoked paprika. Dark sugars appear without any cloying character, followed by the elegant acidity of crisp apple which evolves leaving a dry finish leaving you feeling like you’ve just experienced chili infused dark chocolate, dipped in subtle smoked apple jam.
