Bakery Hill Classic Malt Cask Strength

This Australian single malt was one of the harder whiskies to find in 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die as they no longer distribute in UK or USA.  However after an email to the distillery I was able to arrange for some samples to be sent to a colleague in Australia, who kindly hand carried them to Paris in February 2014.  The nose has sweet malt, candied oranges and surprisingly little alcohol for 60% ABV.  The taste has lots of floral notes, vanilla and more of the sweet malt from the nose.  Smooth mouthfeel at first and then the alchohol bites before finishing very dry and sweet.  With water some toffee apple notes in the taste and the oak pushes through into the finish.  Very nice and more evidence that Australia is a match for the UK in more than just cricket.
