Fleurieu Distillery The Jabberwocky is a barrel-ends release.
The Jabberwocky is not only comprised of barrel-ends from other releases but also married up with other barrels that didn’t exhibit the typical Fleurieu DNA. Like the nonsense words within the poem, these “black sheep” barrels when combined, created a beautifully balanced whisky with just a hint of heat and smoke.
A perfect example of the whole in the end being greater than the sum of its parts.
Limited to 750 hand-numbered bottles.
A little peated, a little wild, it is comprised of barrel ends from other releases married up with other 100L apera and tawny barrels.
At 52% the dark mahogany hue offers the classic Fleurieu pastrami umami DNA overlaid with deep raisin and fig sweetness on the front of the palate. This is carried through by a malty barley backbone to a delightful finish of toffee vanillin notes. The subtle overlay of smoke giving it just a hint of danger.
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! We hope you enjoy Fleurieu Distillery The Jabberwocky!
