Waiheke Whisky Moss

$179.00

PEATED NZ SINGLE MALT WHISKY

44% ABV | 700ml Bottle

NON CHILL FILTERED. NO ADDED COLOUR

This is MOSS batch #02 – made from peated New Zealand malt, double distilled and aged in American oak and then ex-bourbon casks. 

Full bodied and easy drinking, Moss is the perfect gateway to New Zealand peat, and our head distiller Patrick Newton declares batch #02 even better. 

A crowd pleasing whisky with a very interesting contrast from nose to palate, created by the interaction of the peated malt with the American oak wine barrels, which were shaved, toasted and re-charred (STR). Further maturation in first fill ex-bourbon barrels provides a creamy texture and a long lingering finish with spice and sweet fruit, and a tease of smoke.

Aroma: floral aromas of jasmine, honey, liquorice, vanilla bean and  peat smoke. 

Palate: Full bodied with hints of toffee, moss,  and allspice  lead to a  rich oily mouthfeel. The umami notes from the  New Zealand peat, spice and sweet fruit lead to a long lingering finish.

Malt: Peated Malt Gladfield New Zealand
