Spirit Thief New Zealand Whisky Collection French Oak Pinot Noir & American Oak Bourbon
Distilled in Christchurch, NZ, in 2013 at the Workshops Whisky Distillery and matured in Oamaru in the South Island, this small batch release was originally commissioned for New Zealand Whisky Collection. However, earthquakes and other seismic events saw this spirit set aside in a refill Bourbon cask for 3 years before being re-racked for two years in small New Zealand Pinot Noir casks and one American oak Bourbon cask. After crossing the seas they were eventually married together in Spirit Thief’s Tasmanian bondstore in 2019. Expect crème-caramel and vanillin aromas, enmeshed with baked cherry-tart and delicate floral notes finishing with sugar and spice.
