One of the newest on the New Zealand Whisky scene. Pokeno distillery, nestled just outside the small Waikato town of the same name has quickly gained traction both here and abroad. Part of their core release range, the 'Origin' has been distilled using only local New Zealand malted barley, and exclusively aged in first fill ex Bourbon casks. Bottled at 43% the result is an exceptionally smooth Whisky, perfect for those who are newcomers to the spirit, or indeed those who really enjoy their whisky.
There are notes of sweet honey, caramel and creamy toffee notes, which give way to juicy citrus and grapefruit, with a sweet, smooth lingering finish.
