South Island 18 Single Malt

Country: New Zealand
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: New Zealand Whisky Company
ABV: 40%
Score: 89 points

This whisky was distilled in 1993 at the old Seagrams Willowbank distillery in Dunedin, New Zealand, and earlier expressions of it were bottled under the Milford label. The nose is aromatic and peppery with notes of toasted oak and honey, butterscotch, and toasted coconut. The taste is tart and lemony at first, with cinnamon and honey notes that come alive soon after with butterscotch candies and an underlying citrus tartness. The finish is tart and lemony with mild cinnamon.
