Willowbank 15 yo, NZWC Dunedin Double Wood, 40 %

This whisky is matured in American oak for 6 years and then finished in French Oak NZ barrels. It is a blend of 30 % premium grain whisky and 70 % single malt from Willowbank Distillery. Some creamy sweet vanilla, fruity notes and Toffifee sweetness in the smell.

Fruity flavors explode in your mouth! Some barley and light oak as well. In the finish you get some dried fruit and nuts. It lies so smooth in the mouth!

Well balanced and (for me) surprising in the taste. The complexity is good and you notice new stuff all the time. Only thing I could have wished for is a bit higher ABV. I will give this 90/100 (22/22/23/23).
