Limeburners M61 Review

limeburners m61 This Limeburners M61 is part of a series of three small batch whiskies from Australian distillery Limeburners which have been provided to me by Andrew (@ardbaggie) who is their UK representative.

This dram was matured in 100ltr American ex bourbon casks and finished in very old Australian port casks barrelled on the 30/09/2008 and bottled on the 12/09/2013 making it almost 5 years old, this cask strength version at 60% really works with the flavours coming out stronger and with more oily mouthfeel, really nice dram.

Many thanks to Andrew (@ardbaggie) and Limeburners for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

A lovely spike of acetone covered plum jam and sprinkled demerera sugar with lots of toffee and menthol, there's a big malty, meaty note in here that hides in the background and jumps out every now and again to suprise you.

Palate

a huge menthol note with plum jam and demerera sugar, needs a touch of water to tame the acetone and bring out the meaty notes

Finish

plum jam, demerera sugar and toffee
