It’s with sheer joy that we can finally pop the cork on December’s exclusive Tassie Add-In, a superb cask strength port cask matured single malt representing the pinnacle of Old Kempton craftsmanship, and The Whisky Club is the only place you’ll find it.
This showcase Old Kempton bottling was created from personally-tasted and hand-selected 20 litre Grand Burge Port barrels which, in a first for the distillery, were then vatted and brilliantly finished in a single South Australian Port Cask, delivering an indulgently special dram exclusively to Whisky Club Members.
Opening strong with golden syrup, berries, and fresh ANZAC biscuits on the nose, just a sip puts you in the fast lane to flavour-town, with spicy red peppers making way for abundant red fruits, candy and honey on toast. In a line-up with other Old Kempton drams expect a smoother, fruiter, richer and oiler finish, underpinned by that classic world-class Old Kempton spirit.
Bottled at a rock-solid 60% ABV and in very limited numbers, this exclusive small-batch cask strength whisky is a must-have for collectors and Friday night dram enthusiasts alike.
This whisky will be available to Add-in to all Club Members from this Friday, 6 December while stocks last.

Colour: Deep copper
Nose: Sweet and thick, toasty, golden syrup drizzled over plums and mixed berries, freshly baked ANZAC biscuits
Palate: Viscous and oily, it’s intense in the mouth with red pepper spices initially, making way for ripe cherries, apples and cranberries, candy, honey on toast, and distinct cereal notes.
Finish: Long and strong, leaves your mouth satisfied and coated with a delicious sweet swirl of fruits and syrup before gently fading, signalling time for another sip
