Sullivans Cove, Tasmania’s world leading luxury single malt whisky, has been awarded a coveted Liquid Gold award in Jim Murray’s 2015 Whisky Bible.
Sullivans Cove American Oak Cask HH0047 scored 95.5/100, the highest score ever achieved by an Australian whisky in this year’s bible. This is an exceptional achievement for the distillery’s American Oak variety after the French Oak was named the world’s best single malt in the 2014 World Whisky Awards in London and further cements Sullivans Cove place as one of the world’s leading distilleries.
Now in its 12th year, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible aims to annually score every whisky available on the market. The book currently list 4,700 whiskies, each individually tasted, evaluated and rated by Murray, with the 2015 edition adding over 1,000 new whiskies to the list.
Chief distiller Patrick Maguire was delighted with the results: “This award is a fantastic recognition of the superior quality of our range and it is great to have the American Oak in the limelight after all the attention that the French Oak has been getting of late. This award is made so much more special by the fact that barrel HH0047 was the 47th cask that we ever made and it’s great to know that we got it right so early.”
Speaking on Sullivans Cove American Oak Cask HH0047, Murray noted: “…hard to imagine a malt whisky being more malt whiskier…few distilleries do weight on delivery better than this one…exemplary malt whisky: absolutely beautiful.”
This adds to Tasmanian whisky’s growing reputation for excellent whisky. In addition to Sullivans Cove, which was named the world’s best single malt whisky and has now won its fourth “Liquid Gold” award, Lark Distillery, Heartwood Distillers, Old Hobart Distillery and Nant Distillery have all achieve “Liquid Gold” status and Jim Murray awards Liquid Gold status to whiskies that score 94/100 or higher in his Whisky Bible and these whiskies are considered to be the very finest currently available in the world.
Fantastic news from Tim over at Tasmanian Heartwood Malt Whisky:
“It’s taken time. It’s big. It’s origin is a Port Cask from Tasmania Distillery, Sullivan’s Cove. Distilled by Bill and Patrick. It’s over 14 years old………AND IT IS 72%ABV (not our strongest but very close) and its recipe is top secret, apart from the information I have just given you.
WE always say it…..yes, it is one of our best. Possibly even better than the CONVICT REDEMPTION Batch 2. More bam per dram, more throttle per bottle, more pleasure per measure, more flavour to savour.
Enjoy the moment.”
