Introducing Penelope Toasted Single Barrel - Our Second Toast, a delightful play on words that holds a dual significance for us. Not only does it mark the debut of our second toasted barrel release, but it also pays homage to the collaborative spirit with Penelope Distillery and our mates at Orrsum Spirits, who graciously granted us access to yet another Penelope Toasted Barrel Bourbon.

The clamour for a second barrel of Penelope has been relentless, spurred by the overwhelming admiration for our initial release. However, as they say, good things take time.

Nearly a year has elapsed since we carefully selected the sample, after which we shared it with a group of devoted Barrel & Batch enthusiasts having their first taste at the annual Pedder Wilderness Lodge Whisky Weekend in Tasmania. The long-awaited moment has finally arrived with our "Second Toast" release - although, regrettably, the yield from this barrel is limited to a mere 84 bottles, less than half of the inaugural batch!

While our first barrel leaned towards brighter flavours, the Second Toast unveils a sensory journey. The nose is greeted by notes of sweet oak and tannin, swiftly overtaken by the richness of burnt brown sugar. As the palate unfolds, it cascades into the depths of deep caramel, as luscious and thick as maple, accompanied by a distinct maple essence. Chewy chocolate eclairs add a layer of complexity, culminating in a finish that leaves a lingering hint of dark fruits and milk chocolate. Our Second Toast is not just a continuation; it's an exquisite evolution of flavour - cheers to patience and craftsmanship.
