Fleurieu Distillery - The Jabberwocky Single Malt Whisky - South Australia 52% 700ML
The Jabberwocky is our barrel-ends release. A little peated, a little wild, the Jabberwocky in Lewis Carol’s poem resonated as a name for us, as the poem was a favourite of ours to read aloud to our boys from the Graham Base illustrated book of the poem. It always fascinated us that although the poem is made up of many nonsensical words, together they create a powerful story.
This can be reflective of whisky too. 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.
The Jabberwocky is our ‘barrel-ends release’. 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.
limited to 750 hand-numbered bottles.

We took out the citrus and substituted quince, aromatic, but in a slightly different way. We grow quinces, but not so much citrus here in Lenswood, the apple capital of the Adelaide Hills.
Backed up by a pure Juniper note, juniper is essential for a gin, and supported by a blend of ...
