Wizards of Whisky Awards
Insider knowledge: New Zealand 23 Year Old 1988 whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from New Zealand. If distilled in America the spelling would be New Zealand 23 Year Old 1988 whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Spicy, rich aromas. Creamy caramel. A little vanilla, dried banana chips and apricots.
Palate: Thick with malt and sweetness. Banana, black pepper and allspice. Candied orange.
Finish: Warming, toasted finish.
