Avian at the Wrecking Coast Distillery in Cornwall has been hard at work ageing spirits to give them a benchmark for their own aged spirit... (more to come in the future wink wink, nudge nudge).
The first release is a sherry cask finished 8 year old rye whiskey from Germany. After a long search they settled on this modern take on rye whiskey, very different from the American ryes that we are more familiar with, but still with classic rye spice at its core. This whiskey balances sweetness and spice, and layers in fruitiness from the spirit, as well as some extra depth from its time finishing in sherry casks. It’s the perfect inspiration for their own whisky and a base for their ongoing experiments.
Cask strength with fantastic depth of flavour.
Nose: Rye bread with butter and berry jam. Sweet honey builds, with cinnamon, tarragon and a hint of mint. Butter toffee, salted caramel and spice develop.
Palate: Brown sugar, blackberries, blackcurrants and their leaves to start. Darker notes of liquorice and fruity dark chocolate are joined by mint choc chip and earthy damp oak.
Finish: Treacle toffee, liquorice, blackcurrants and leaves.
