Description

Blackadder International was established in 1995 by Robin Tucek who, together with daughter Hannah and son Michael runs the family business.

Robin Tucek is also co-author with John Lamond of The Malt Whisky File – one of the most respected books about malt whisky.

The Blackadder Raw Cask whiskies are complete cask whiskies bottled containing cask sediment.

Blackadder’s philosophy is very simple – they believe that the Cask is King. Sixty to seventy percent of the flavors in a whisky are taken up slowly from the cask as the spirit lies maturing in the warehouse. The action of changing temperature draws the spirit in and out of the cask. Every cask is unique, with its own fingerprint. This is why they bottle most of their whiskies from single casks. They don’t believe in chilling or otherwise heavily filtering their whiskies, and they never, repeat never, add caramel coloring and flavoring to their spirits. They have always believed the personalities of their whiskies are colorful enough.

Taste

Beenleigh is Australia’s oldest operating distillery, surrounded by both sugarcane and rum distilling history. They claim to have created Australia’s original Rum, back before even Coca-Cola was invented. Over 136 years later they are still crafting small-batch rum the traditional way, at their distillery on the banks of the Albert River in Eagleby QLD.

They source Australia’s finest molasses from the country’s only remaining family-owned sugar mill and others across Queensland- the ‘sweet-spot’ of Australia’s sugarcane industry.

Holly’s Tasting Notes: Flat coke, beef jerky and burnt, smoked meats in general. Teriyaki! Along with the meats, there is a sweet grape in there. The palate is charred grapes and more Dr. Pepper notes; spicier cola. The cola quality is really in there.
