    Cyril's Singlewood

    This is a 43% ABV New Zealand single malt, made at the non-operating Dunedin Distillery and matured for 20 years in American oak.  The nose has sweet toffee and tart green apples with some barley sugar.  The taste is both sweet and oaky, vanilla and other signs of the 20 years spent in oak come through.  The finish is peppery and dry.
