Pōkeno Winter Malt Exploration Series No.2 New Zealand Single Malt Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 48% Age: No Age Statement Country: New Zealand
The Pōkeno Distillery is nestled in a warm, often misty valley, protected by the volcanic hills from which they source their pure spring water, Pōkeno is a hidden treasure of the remote and beautiful land – and a natural choice of location for a state-of-the-art distillery.
Everything Pōkeno do is driven by their goal to create one of the world’s great single malts. Batch production, long fermentation and slow distillation are just a few of the things that help make Pōkeno whisky different. As craft distillers, they are also able to focus on quality over quantity, doing things their way, not the easy way.
Pōkeno select only the finest casks to mature their precious spirit, and the warm sub-tropical local climate accelerates its maturation and flavour development. In Pōkeno the angels do not wait.
All of this allows Pōkeno to produce single malt whisky with exceptional body and flavour; whisky that captures the pure spirit of Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Pokeno winter malt was inspired by the unique selection of New Zealand malts that were chose for the mashbill:
Manuka Smoked Malt: The Manuka tree is indigenous to New Zealand, and this is the world’s only manuka smoked malt. It has a smooth, sweet smokiness
Chocolate Roasted Malt: This is specially roasted for us, and has lovely coffee and chocolate aromas.
Toffee Malt: This is a unique malt, roasted at very low temperatures and then caramelised. It adds honey and toffee flavours.
Laureate Distillers Malt: This is a very sweet and floral malt.
Matured in first fill ex-Bourbon barrels and bottled at 48% ABV as the second part of the Exploration Series from the distillery.
