If you get chance to try it, there's even a New Zealand Single Malt,
called Lammerlaw. I presume it means 'using single malted barley and
distilled twice in pot stills at the same distillery'. Now having seen that
sentence, I can see the temptation to call it 'single malt'. Lammerlaw does
have a sharp (but not unpleasant) aftertaste that might be attributed to
rye. Some people like Lammerlaw (me, for instance), some people don't.
Wilson's Willowbank Distillery by the Water of Leith in Dunedin was
dismantled last year . The single malt produced by the distillery was
bottled as Lammerlaw, named after the mountain ranges from where the water
was piped. Clearly, Lammerlaw is on the Whisky Red List of endangered species.
