We now have Ballantines 17 year old (which was also recently awarded “Jim Murray’s Whisky of the Year for 2011″) on the shelves at The Laneway. Below are some tasting notes from the Whiskynotes website:
Nose: smooth start with pancake aromas, vanilla and creamy milk chocolate. Soft fruity aromas (lemon / lime), almonds and cinnamon. Hints of smoke. Cedar wood and a touch of leather. Mouth: honeyed and spicy start, slightly peppery and gingery. Elegant peat smoke again. Oak and toffee notes. Developing on fruit cake. Not complex but well balanced. Finish: circling around the same core of chocolate, delicate smoke and spices.

We also have the new Weka Apple and Weka Pear ciders on the shelves. The Weka Apple cider is now made using 100% Nelson (region) Grown Apple Cider and the Pear Cider is made using a combination of pears from the North and South Islands of New Zealand. The Weka Pear cider recently won Gold at the Asia International Beer Awards and the Apple was awarded Silver.
Come in and try one of these refreshing ciders now that the weather is (mostly…) warming up! Look forward to seeing you in the bar soon.
