Hobart Whisky is a family-owned distillery based in Hobart, Tasmania, established in 2014 their philosophy is entirely based around making whisky for them, that they love, and want to share. Despite being one of the first ten Tasmanian distilleries, they flew under the radar for quite a while, and in this time concentrated on making whisky. Not all expressions are the same and every bottle of every release is hand bottled and labelled in the distillery with each bottle having its own identifying bottle number.

Hobart Whisky bears testimony to Tasmanian malted barley, fermented with style, gently distilled with grace, then sweetly rested in hand selected oak casks. Whiskies are matured predominantly in American oak ex-bourbon casks and each small batch holds its own distinctive characteristics and signature.

This release is a barrel aged beer project from distiller and brewer, Ben and Trevor. Starting with an Oatmeal stout that was brewed onsite and barrel aged in ex-bourbon cask for 3 months. Carefully selected ex-bourbon mature single malt whisky was vatted before finishing in the freshly decanted stout cask. Initially planned for release in August, the stout was served at the 2022 Tasmanian Whisky Week boilermaker event at the Gold Bar. However the release was delayed with distiller Ben deciding to re-cask it into another fresh stout cask.

The result is an undeniably stout cask influenced whisky that is rich and bold with notes of roasted hazelnuts, rich caramel, and subtle tobacco. Fruit and nut chocolate, banana bread, chocolate coated liquorice, a long finish with gentle ginger and rye spice sweetness lingering.
