Old Hobart Overeem Sherry Cask, 55%

Price: $155.00 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

The latest addition to Tasmania's burgeoning and diverse whisky industry bottles for the first time in October 2011. This is just 4 years old, and while this isn't Kavalan, the flavor is amazing: full and rich sherry, honeyed, intense, and fruity. The score reflects the fact that it's well-made, yet way short of its optimum age. But wow — what a prospect this distillery is! AUD150 (Not available in the U.S.)
