Have you heard of @morriswhisky ? It’s a relatively new single malt whisky coming out of Australia. While their whisky might be new, the Morris family has been producing wine since 1859! - Thanks to a long history of making fortified wines (easy access to quality casks for maturing whisky) and a hybrid still they’ve had since 1941, making whisky just makes sense. They were kind enough to send over a bottle of their Signature single malt for me to review. - Nose: malt forward, sweet barley, rich, dark berries - Palate: viscous, bready, black cherry, chocolate, buttered graham cracker - Finish: medium, baking spice, more malty sweetness - While it’s an NAS it tastes well aged. There is no alcohol or spirity bite. It seems well blended and cohesive. The fortified wine casks are imparting great flavors but are definitely not overpowering. - I’ve actually tried a few whiskies from Morris before they reached out to me and was already a fan but it was nice to sit down and spend more time with it. I can tell there is going to be a lot of good whisky coming out of this place. Don’t sleep on this one. 🥃 - #morriswhisky #morrissinglemalt #australiansinglemalt #australiansinglemaltwhisky #australianwhisky #singlemalt #singlemaltwhisky

@highlandparkofficial Cask Strength batch 4 - Finally sat down and took some time to review the new batch from HP. I’ve been a fan of previous batches so expectations were high. - Nose: citrus upfront, mostly lemon, floral, cigar box, sweet and savory - Palate: a lot more sherry and port influence apparent on the taste. Oloroso nuttiness and first and then it develops into black pepper, grilled pineapple, heather peat, then the lighter, fruitier notes. - Finish: quite long, dark fruits, spices and soft smoke. - This release comes in at 64.3%. They just seem to be getting higher. I guess batch 10 will be around 70% 🤪. ABV aside, they’ve added some port casks to the mix this time and it definitely brings out some of the sweeter notes with the sherry. I did a quick comparison to batch 1 and 2 (don’t have 3) and there is a bit more complexity to batch 4. Batch 1 was more vibrant and effervescent, really bourbon forward, while batch 2 was more earthy, musty and woody. That said, they all share a similar profile. - I assume there will be a batch 5. I’d really like to see them make that one distinctly different than the previous 4. Maybe use a majority of a different type of cask, or use a higher proportion of peated malt. I understand that’s probably more difficult to produce the volume they want if they did that but it would be more interesting. Guess we’ll see. - #highlandparkwhisky #highlandparkdistillery #highlandparkcaskstrength #orkneyislands #orkneywhisky #singlemaltscotch
