Following an article in the Newspaper(The Age) in November 2009 (that I kept), I decided to post this so I can share what we have down under.
I have no idea how good the stuff is or how available it is inside/outside Oz, but I will make sure that I will try all 3 bottles mentionned in the article.
If someone already tried one of those, please, share. I am no whisky expert, just someone who enjoy some here and there.
The first bottle is called Limeburners from Albany, Western Australia, Single barrel edition only. Good between 6-8 years but best after 12-18 years. Bottle varies between $125-$200 AUD.
Second, Bakery Hill, single malt Whisky made by David Baker in Mount Dandenong, Victoria since 1999. This one is made from Jack Daniel's barrels in a limited edition. Apparently, I will need to be on a waiting list to get this one as they often run out. Good article if interested. Retail price is around $80-$100 AUD.
Last, Lark single malt Whisky from Tasmania. This one seems to be the easiest to get down under. Another interesting article about Lark. Retail price around $125 AUD.
I will probably get on the list for Bakery Hill, get a bottle of Lark or Limeburners and see how I do from there.
