Have you experienced any whiskey from Australia?
Thanks to our good friend and podcast listener James Ewin, we were lucky enough to get our hands on a bottle of The Gospel Whiskey.
This rye whiskey is distilled and bottled in Melbourne Australia and is 100% Australian grown rye from a single farm in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia that embodies the characteristics of traditional rye whiskey while having a nuance that is distinctly Australian.
We hope you enjoy Jim and Mike’s review. To hear more, check out the podcast on your favorite platform. Cheers!
Tasting Notes: The Gospel Whiskey
Vital Stats: It has a 100% un-malted rye mash bill that has been aged two years in new American oak barrels and is 90 proof. It has an MSRP of $50 and can be found in 29 states.
Appearance: Beautiful square green glass that almost is calling to us with a caramel rye whiskey inside.
Nose: Spiced gum drops, citrus with caramel sweetness
Palate: Wow, the nose was spot on with this one. Spiced gum drops and citrus wash over the palate with little to no spice. A little fruit cake or candied fruit sweetness that just coats the mouth. A little drying on the back end.
Finish: Medium finish with no hug.
Overall: This is a buy all day long with both of us wanting to keep this bottle. If you’re looking to have whiskey’s from around the world on your shelf then then this green bottle is must. An expression that represents Australia beautifully.
