Thomson Whisky South Island Peat Progress Report 700ml

In making this whisky, south Island peat is used to toast the the locally grown malts before the fermentation and distilling process. The impact of which can be seen in this progress report, offering up herbaceous, earthy, sweet vanilla aroma's. Which is backed up on the palate with a maratime saltiness along with the famed iodine-like flavour and finishing with a puff smoke. This is a really exciting style of whisky being made in New Zealand, which is perfect if you like the more smokey, peated, Islay styles. 

Although Scottish whisky is overwhelmingly the bench mark in the world of whisky, there has never been a time like now where whisky's made outside of Scotland have been in such high demand. Japanese whisky is rarer than hens teeth and Tasmanian whisky's are racking up prestigious accolades all over the world. This is why it is so exciting to see the Thomson team blazing the whisky trail in NZ. Staunch on using New Zealand grown malts, Manuka and locally sourced peat. Thomson whisky are driven by their ultimate aim of being a force in establishing a New Zealand regional style for whisky recognised around the world.
