Coastal Stone Bourbon Cask Whisky Element Series First Release
Manly Spirits Element Series Coastal Stone Whisky is an Australian Single Malt Whisky crafted as an expression of the maritime elements and raw nature of the Australian coast, combined with the desire to create a whisky that exceeds expectations. The new make spirit for Coastal Stone Single Malt Whisky is crafted at Manly Spirits Co. Distillery from grain to glass. Australian ale malt is mashed to extract the malt sugars which are then slowly converted by a blend of yeasts in a slow fermentation. The wash is double distilled in custom designed copper pot stills to produce a clean, sweet and malty new make spirit. First fill 200 litre Bourbon casks from Kentucky form the backbone of this whisky. Maturation was enhanced by also filling recoopered casks sourced from coopers in Tasmania and South Australia, where they were broken down and reformed into 100 litre casks. All casks were first fill having never held whisky only bourbon previously, providing an amazing roundness in flavour. On the nose gentle vanilla, tropical fruits and caramel toffee. The palate is mellow and sweet with honey and pears, green fruits and a backbone of malt. The finish is long, with delicate vanilla and cinnamon spice. Captured in a contemporary glass bottle, sculpted with the eroded textures of weathered sandstone cliffs that border the Sydney coastline and sealed with a truly unique sandstone stopper, this Single Malt Whisky is presented in a Coastal Stone gift tube. This was first released in 2021 and only 1000 bottles were produced.
