The artisans at Morris Distillery boast a rich heritage spanning six generations, with a legacy deeply rooted in the artistry of crafting wines, skillfully blending and ageing, a tradition passed down through their familial lineage. This enduring expertise has empowered them to achieve mastery in crafting the distinctive and captivating flavour found in their Australian Single Malt Whisky.
Immersed in a fusion of French and American oak, once housing premium Australian red wine, the whisky undergoes maturation before culminating its journey in barrels previously cradling the Morris of Rutherglen 10-year-Aged Amber Apera (Sherry). The Aged Amber, a robust flor fino primarily derived from the Palomino grape, epitomises a drier profile, showcasing grace and intricacy from extended ageing in casks. It serves as a splendid companion to the whisky, resulting in a seamlessly integrated and widely appealing Australian single malt.
The olfactory experience reveals notes of spun toffee, a medley of baked fruit flan adorned with peach compote, and hints of fresh sherry cask nuances. The whisky, meticulously structured, unfolds with nuanced spice, toasted nuttiness, and the pristine essence of oak. Subtle candied lemon undertones interplay with gentle sage and marjoram herbal notes, creating a harmonious symphony of flavours.
