New Zealand Whisky High Wheeler 21 Year Old



New Zealand Whisky High Wheeler 21 Year Old...$87.99 / 375ml
Single Grain
A Master Blend of 70% single malt, and 30% premium grain whisky made from unmalted barley in the Dunedin distillery. Aged for 21 years in American oak, ex-bourbon casks.

The Story:  Years ago, in the Willowbank distillery in Dunedin, a batch of whisky was made in the distillery’s pot-stills using unmalted barley. This “single grain whisky” was then blended with 70% of their single malt, and placed into American Oak, ex-bourbon barrels. Twenty-one years later, we have carefully selected casks and bottled them as “High Wheeler”.


Notes:  
Nose Elegant balance of baked pear and vanilla crisp with gentle floral notes.
Taste Pear sweetness again, smooth and clean body.
Finish Chilli pepper warmth giving way to a long salty and sweet finish.

The Hard Facts
ABV 43%
Age 21 Years
