Heartwood Release The Beast
Just before Christmas i tasted this Heartwood Release The Beast as part of the Festive Drams tweet tasting from Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from The Whisky Wire and Arkwrights.
WOW this is a cracker, Matured in two port barrels and then married in an Australian Sherry cask this cask strength cracker was a suprise addition as it is sold out everywhere.
keep and eye out on Arkwrights though for more from these Australian wonders.
WOW, this is lovely, deep strong sherry notes of prunes, sultanas and raisins, caramel shortcake and vanilla cream, theres something madiera cake like about this too and even some christmas turkey spices like rosemary
vanilla cream and huge caramel hit with some fresh fruits keeping this one balanced perfectly
Hot hot hot, spicy and sweet
