Overeem Bourbon Cask – Old Hobart Distillery

Look what arrived in the mail today! First release of the Bourbon Cask from Overeem. The box feels really luxurious, heavy and just amazing. Really happy with the packaging. I smiled a little when I ran my hand over the front of the box. It was like “it’s here! it is finally here!”20131209-155305.jpg

When you open the box, you find the beautiful bottle encased in solid foam, with 2 matching glasses.

The box comes with a certificate, a numbered bottle and 2 glasses. This is only for no. 2-75 bottles in the first release. No. 1 is up for auction.20131209-160014.jpg

The remaining bottles comes packaged in the usual canister. (Please note that this image is of a different product of theirs. The Port Cask. It has won many awards and can be purchased from their Old Hobart distillery online store) 20131209-160514.jpg

Look at the beautiful straight line down the bottle on this one. And a serial number and certificate. It is an exceptional whiskey indeed.20131209-160930.jpg

Mine!! All mine!! Maybe I should share, but for now, it will sit on the shelf to be admired. The curves on the bottle, the curves on the glass. Just beautiful.20131209-161024.jpg

For now, you won’t be able to order the Bourbon Cask matured online, but you will be able to get the Port and Sherry. I like the Port Cask. It is easy on the taste buds, has a caramel flavour, and distinctively sweet notes. As a girl, this is probably one of my favorite whiskey so far. It is to be enjoyed neat or on the rocks. I have had it neat at Baxter Inn once, (and embarrassingly enough, a separate time during the intermission for a theater performance, from a paper cup), it is a really easy to drink whiskey.
