South Island Single Malt 21YO 700ml
Made from 100% malted New Zealand barley in the Willowbank distillery, Dunedin. This whisky has been aging in American Oak, Ex-Bourbon barrels for 21 years.
The original release of the South Island Single Malt was in an 18 and 21 year old. The barrels were picked via a multitude of barrel samples sent to Hobart, tasted and matched in CEO Greg Ramsay’s lounge room during the Rugby World Cup by Greg himself, production manager Tom Holder, and, to keep things civilized, good friend and lawyer Brendan. The results spoke for themselves, with the first batch picking up the coveted Double Gold in San Fran.
Nose Mature nose with subtle campfire smoke, fruit and drying grass.
Taste Sweet malt, light oak, delicate fruit with light vanilla.
Finish Silky and light with delicate oak and cereal sweetness.

You would be forgiven for thinking this was a 30 or even 35-year-old Speysider: almost a grassy maltiness melding into the light, exotic fruit and freshly chopped celery. Clean, delicate and elegant beyond words.
