THE NEW ZEALAND WHISKY COLLECTION 33 YEARS 1988- SINGLE CASK 70 CL
Originally founded in Dunedin in 1974, the Willowbank distillery closed in 2000. When it was bought by the New Zealand Whisky Company, the few remaining casks were moved to a warehouse in Oamuru for storage, some 60 miles away.
With a remarkably fresh expression, this venerable bottling is at once powerful, firm, intensely fruity and spicy, all while flirting with peat and smoke on the finish.
Fine, complex. Acacia, clove, pear.
