Scapegrace Ephemeral #RP9


Sorry for shouting, but we're very excited by this. From New Zealand distillery Scapegrace, there are just 228 bottles of this available as one of only two Pinot Noir Cask whiskies released by Scapegrace this year, in the world, and the only one outside of New Zealand.

Ephemeral was made from New Zealand laureate barley and aged in a 200-litre virgin French oak barrel for at least five years before it was finished in a single New Zealand Pinot Noir cask. It was then bottled at a cask strength of 57% ABV and is presented with its natural colour, and without chill-filtration.

The Central Otago region is among the most notable Pinot Noir-producing regions and the wines are known for being elegant and structured with a bright acidity and notes of red fruit, fresh herbs, and some floral elements.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Blackcurrant compote, tinned peaches, figs, honey-roasted peanuts, oak tannins, some stony minerality, BBQ rub, pickled walnut, watermelon, and Black Forest gâteau.

Palate A full-bodied, slightly waxy texture. Waves of spice, oaky and peppery, burst out of the gate followed by dark chocolate (the posh kind), fruitcake, red wine, Manuka honey, oak char, and walnut.

Finish Stewed plum, toasted brown sugar, a little red chilli earthiness, and cherry.
