Australasian Single Malt - Ultra-Premium - 2014
The World Whisky Masters 2014 (The Spirits Business)
Insider knowledge: Old Hobart Overeem Sherry Cask Matured (Cask Strength) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Australia. If distilled in America the spelling would be Old Hobart Overeem Sherry Cask Matured (Cask Strength) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
I tried this whisky at the Liverpool whisky festival in September. What An incredible whisky, and dare I say one of the best sherry monsters I have had in a long, long time. This is a 5 year old whisky with all the characteristics of a whisky 3 times it's age. Star of the show, loved it that much I went home with a bottle in hand.
