WhiskY Thief

TAsting notes

Technically speaking, when you drink this beer you’ll be harbouring a known felon. Sure, at the time you had no idea what this traditionally brewed Wee Heavy was up to. And you weren’t to know it spent nine months pilfering all it could from a NZ Double Wood Whisky barrel. So you may as well enjoy the sweet, rather warming, complex malt character. Because now you’ve read this, you’re also an accessory after the fact.
