Insider knowledge: Old Hobart Overeem Sherry CaskMatured 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 CaskMatured whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
I can't put it any better than stated above! I bought a bottle of this lovely liquid for Christmas Day. Typically I am a Speyside whiskey fan, but after trying this at a Christmas party whereOvereem was featured tasted something completely unique, I would definitely recommend this Aussie treat for ANY occasion!

On the nose we have notes spiced apple pie, vanilla ice cream some perfumed notes and a slight vegetative note (boiled sweet potato.) Given time some sweet, plump raisins come to the fore, alongside a little dustiness and some cracked black pepper. Extremely rich and complex!
The palate: Wonderfully spicy and sweet, with star anise, clove and cinnamon dusted apples coating the palate, alongside some dried fruits (apricot and date), soft caramel and some vibrant blood orange notes.
The finish is very lengthy indeed giving lingering notes of dark chocolate, orange zest and toasted malt.
