2016 Australian Distilled Spirits Awards - Whisky liqueur

Bronze Medal - Bishops Choice Premium

The Australian Whiskey Company's Malt Whiskey with aromatic citrus spice, overlaid with warming malty notes of butterscotch - toffee flavours balance with subtle malt whiskey oak and vanilla. The taste is a complex progression, starting silky smooth on the tongue, glowing with the warmth of exotic spices, overlaid with citrus. Finally these flavours entwine, mellow and gently fade - a creation of pure harmony. 2016 Bronze Medal Winner - Australian Distilled Spirits Awards.
