New Zealand Whisky

New Zealand Whisky High Wheeler 21 Year Old...$39.99 / 375ml
Next lowest price in the country is $69.99

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”.
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.
