Fleurieu Distillery - Englishman In New York Single Malt Whisky - South Australia 46% 700ML
At long last the final in our trilogy of Tawny releases is here!
After ‘Message In A Bottle’ and ‘Tea In The Sahara’, the new release ‘Englishman In New York’ is a celebration of remaining true to oneself. Even now in these modern times, we live in a society that constantly tries to influence us to be something other than ourselves. A marriage of Tawny and Fronti casks, ‘Englishman in New York’ delivers the traditional Fleurieu Distillery coastal umami character overlaid with a sweet salt finish. As we continue stepping into a decade of change, we hope this delicious dram will assist you to “… be yourself, no matter what they say”.
limited to 550 hand-numbered bottles.

It could possibly be described as part way between a Tokay and a Sauternes in character.
