Bakery Hill Cask Strength Single Malt, 60%

Price: $109.00 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

While much of the interest in Australian whisky has focused on Tasmania, there are mainland distilleries, such as The Great Southern Distilling Company and this one, which have been making a major contribution to the country's growing whisky reputation. In fact, David Baker's malt is as good as anything in Australasia. This is a Scotch-style single malt, all clean fresh green fruit, particularly apples, and some orange. The taste is zingy, with almonds and sweet chocolate-covered digestive biscuits. Delicious. AUD105 (Not available in the U.S.)
