Morris Rutherglen Muscat Barrel Whisky 700ml
Established in 1859, the Morris family winery is one of the most acclaimed fortified producers in the world.
Craftsmanship in blending, ageing and creating world-class fortified wine has been passed down through six generations of the family, allowing MORRIS to truly master the creation of extraordinary flavour in Australian single malt whisky.
The unique and distinctive MORRIS whisky flavour comes from unrivalled access to fortified wine barrels for finishing the whisky, barrels which have held the world’s most highly awarded fortified wines.
In 2016, the distillery was built around the original copper still built in the 1930’s and installed at the Morris winery in 1941.
Creamy mouthfeel packed full of rich dark fruits and sweet malt notes, which give way to sweet vanilla and cocoa interspersed with cinnamon spice.
The whisky is matured in a combination of French and American oak ex-wine barrels plus finished in rare Morris Muscat barrels, previously used to create multi-award winning Muscat.

NOSE: Rich with dates, figs and sweetness of dark molasses.
