Years ago, in the Willowbank distillery in Dunedin, a batch of whisky was made in the distillery’s column still 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.
