Our Darkest Winter is one of Limeburners’ most awarded expressions, having been declared best whisky in the Southern Hemisphere by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, in 2018.
Darkest Winter is made using peat collected by hand from the Valley of the Giants, in Walpole. These Giants are the rare and majestic 400-year-old Red Tingle Trees that are native to this area, and grow nowhere else in the world.
The barley is smoked for an extended period with this Valley of the Giants Peat, resulting in a heavier, more intense style of whisky, ideally suited for the darkest winter.
Matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels, this multi-award-winning single malt exhibits spice and floral aromas when neat. A splash of water unleashes malted barley and intense complex smoky aromas.
Each barrel will exhibit its own unique characteristics, creating slight variation from batch to batch.
