78 Degrees Triple Smoke Whiskey ($150)

A collaboration between 78 Degrees and Corsair Distillery in the United States. 78 Degrees took single paddock unmalted barley and smoked it with Australian red gum, while Corsair smoked the same barley with American cherrywood. A portion of Scottish peated malt was then added to these smoked malts, mashed, fermented, distilled and matured to create something that ties together the three whisky producing regions. 

Starward Vitalis Single Malt Whisky ($199)

A limited edition bottling to commemorate Starward’s 15th anniversary. Hand selected parcels of red wine cask matured whisky have been married with tawny, bourbon, apera (1st fill and 2nd fill) and rum barrels ranging between 4 and 10 years to represent Starward’s 15 year journey to now.

Never Never Distilling Co. Banded South Australian Blended Malt Whisky ($185)

The first and, supposedly, only whisky we’re likely to see from South Australia’s world-renowned gin producer Never Never Distilling Co. Created from six casks produced by two South Australian whisky distilleries (Fleurieu and McLaren Vale Distillery) that were originally filled in 2017. Whisky from these casks was blended and further finished in a muscat cask.

Morris Sherry Barrel Single Malt Whisky ($145)

Morris Whisky have just introduced Sherry Barrel to their core range, matured in casks that previously held Morris’s Mia Aged Amber Apera

Archie Rose Double Malt Whisky ($85)

Archie Rose have just unveiled their new Fundamental Spirits range. Launching in early 2023, the range will include a Double Malt Whisky, a blend of Archie Rose Single Malt and Rye Malt Whisky matured in ex-apera, bourbon and virgin oak casks. Priced at just $85. Definitely one to keep on the radar.

Amber Lane Distillery PX Cask by The Whisky List ($179)

A new Amber Lane Distillery malt bottled by The Whisky List. Matured in a single 300 litre ex-apera (McWilliams) cask before being finished in a 250 litre ex-pedro ximenez cask from Fernando de Castilla

Lark The Christmas Cask ($250)

Lark have announced that their next Christmas cask bottling will soon be available. Christmas cask is finished in Frogmore Creek red wine barrels that were seasoned with jus used for making fruit mince pies.
