Iniquity Silver Label Batch 23

Iniquity Single Malt Whisky - Silver Label Batch 23 Review

Iniquity single malt comes from Tin Shed Distilling Company in Australia. I received these samples from the distillery:

They are thinking of expanding their market to Europe, so it was exciting to taste their expressions. 

This one’s called Silver Label. Batch 23 is a 3 year old single malt bottled in 46% alcohol by volume level. Matured in:

  • 47.8 % 1st fill 4 YO Sherry US Oak
  • 49.8% 1st fill 3 YO Port cask US Oak
  • 2.4% 1st fill 2YO Bourbon that had originally spent 1 year in a 1st fill Shiraz cask

Very quick notes

Good start in sherry matured whisky category. This might attract experienced drinkers, even though it falls bit short for my taste.

I could see a bright future for it, fairly priced or with longer maturation for premium priced customers.

Matured in:
Ex-Port, Ex-Sherry & Ex-Bourbon casks
ABV: 46%
Non-chill filtered
Colour: Golden amber
Nose: Dry at first, turns into sherry sweetness. Hints of spices such as nutmeg. Leather notes rise from the back.
Taste: Young distillate tastes in this one, but sherry influence is nicely attached. Ripe plums and spices.
Finish: Dry sherry, medium length. Oak bitterness. Bit sweet.
Balance: Young port sweetness and sherry dryness, could use more maturation time to really get the oak and influence going. But fits nicely to my palate as is.
