Schmidty Takes Us Through Iniquity Batch 14

Tin Shed Distillery distiller Ian Schmidt takes drinkers through his tasting notes from Batch 14 of their Iniquity silver label expression.

Batch 14 is made up of 30% a two-year-old American oak sherry cask, the rest a combination of dregs and bottling left overs married in a French oak red wine cask.

The whisky is available from the South Australian distillery's website, written tasting notes below:

Nose: Honey, herbs and toffee early then sliding to mint toffee with ferns and vine leaves. Nice, gentle and ferny woody notes that get a sour edge which is slightly sappy.

Palate: Big, rich and much more Christmas cakey than the nose even slightly hinted.  More oomph with plums with a spirit bite; very warming, some slightly astringent stone fruits and there’s some wine barrels, maybe port or sherry, best bet is medium dry sherry.

Finish: Some sour fruits and dusty oak, warming alcohol. Apricot and pastry comes out in the end along with wood bitters. The apricots and the wood really linger.

Comment:  Mellow, yet complex and interesting.
