Well crafted prose are often defined as classic literature (The prose poem is a type of poetry characterised by its lack of line breaks). At Heartwood we consider ourselves somewhat "--------" in that regard.

So here goes.

Da Da Daaaaa.... ("-------" means deficient)

1.0 TIB??005 has been labelled and will be available on our TIB website (www.tib.net.au) today. A Renowned NSW Distillery, 49.1%, $185.00. Sherry cask. It is one of those whisky where the bottle will be empty before you realise.

A new online club is being formed for TIB call the Tipsy Tiger Club. Wait for the graphic from our famed artist. Same guy who does our dinosaurs.

2.0 Heartwood : Night Thief has been bottled. 299 bottles. 64.3% ABV. Sherry. Lark Origin Spirit. It falls into the characteristic of a "Session" Whisky though still dark and brooding. Available in May.

When decanted LD 654 was a little flat and boring. Not to Heartwood standards for release. We added life by incorporating 5% of a younger whisky LD 775. Our brontosaurus (with a little bit of Stegosaurus through gene splicing. Techniques taken from Jurassic Park and improved by Heartwood) has been created. Will this creature break out and create havoc in the market place.

I hope so.

All Good
