Dunedin DoubleWood
16 Year Old

A MasterBlend of 70% single malt, and 30% premium grain whisky produced from unmalted barley in the Willowbank Distillery. Aged for 6 years in American Bourbon barrels, before finishing for 10 in French Oak NZ wine barrels, giving ruby colour, depth of character and long-lasting, rich flavours.

DoubleWood comes from transferring six year old MasterBlended whisky from American Oak to French Oak ex-red wine barrels. The new barrels came from the North Island and previously contained New Zealand Pinot and Cab Sauv. The current DoubleWood release has benefited from sitting at least ten years in the French Oak barrels giving it a truly unique flavour.

Nose:  Complex sweetness with layers of aromatic dried fruit and spices
Taste:  Rich full natural sweetness with pleasant fruit and spicy flavours
Finish: Satisfyingly warm with lingering toffee

Oamaru’s seaside climate has been identified as ideal for for maturing whisky The extra special quality of The Oamaruvian whisky comes from sitting longer in selected casks chosen for their rich toffee, floral nose and creaming soda mouth-feel. A hint of Oamaru sea spray complements the finish.

Notes

Colour:  Dark cherry wood

Nose:  Bold port-soaked raisins followed by dark cherries, cloves and various stone fruits.  Water and time brings out pecan praline, almonds and balsamic reduction glaze.

Taste:  A vibrant taste of dried fruits, including dried cherries and strawberries, intertwined with almonds and nutmeg leading to a palate covering liquorice sweetness spiked with anise.

Finish:  A slightly drying and energetic see-saw between the spices and sweetnesses experienced.  Somewhat acidic on the tongue, but it carries a very pleasant balance along the drawn out port-like finale.
