some cheeky buggers down in Tassie called the "Small Concern Whisky
Distillery" that market one in Europe they call 'Antipodean'. It's
a blend of Scottish Springbank Single Malt and Tasmanian Cradle
Mountain Single Malt (I guess the 'tongue-in-cheek' logic is that
single + single = double. :-)
They market the same item here in a different bottle and call
it 'Cradle Mountain Double Malt'.

At $67 AUD a bottle I think I'll leave it where it is. I can buy
real Springbank for that price (if I had a mind to).
