Old Hobart Overeem Port Cask Matured, 60%

Price: $176.00 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Last year's cask strength version was 55% and way too young. There is also a view that the early stages of maturation in port are not only inconsistent, but can be negatively wayward. No such problems here. This is no longer an ugly duckling but a young swan: rich fruitcake, fresh summer fruits, and a charcoal undercarpet that helps quash the overly sweet notes. This then is the world's most improved whisky. A$170
