The latest Cellar Door release from Craft Works Distillery is the Capertee - Release 2. The good thing about this is, you do not have to go to the Distillery to get hold of one, we have them available online. This is an independent bottling from an undisclosed distillery in NSW.
It is a little hot which is surprising because it is bottles at 47.5% ABV and a multi cask vattting: of two wine casks, Chardonnay (100L) & Botrytis (20L); and a ex-Bourbon (200L) cask. These give a complexion of flavour, which takes some time to shine through.
Nose: Warming nose which tapers off, to bring sweet vanilla and a little oak. Initially feinty nose, but when left to open it, this dissipates.
Palate: Still has a bite, with a buttery note smoothing the flavour. Old Oak, honey, mild lemon & subtle ginger come through.
Finish: A spicy and hot finish, with a long length.
