The New-Zealand Whisky Collection - Dunedin DoubleWood - 15 Years 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 in French Oak NZ wine barrels, giving ruby colour, depth of character and long-lasting, rich flavours. The awesomeness of the Dunedin DoubleWood comes from the foresight of our predecessors, the Preston family, to transfer a large number of 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 Cabernet Sauvignon. The Prestons released their DoubleWood after two years in French Oak. Our current release has benefited from at least nine years in the new barrels giving it a truly unique flavour.
