A top-flight dram
Whisky aficionados would adore a bottle of exquisite Oamaruvian whisky for Christmas. It’s been aged for six years in American ex-bourbon oak barrels followed by 10 years in French oak ex-red wine barrels. My verdict: one amazing dram! Enjoy neat or with a bit of water as ice will heavily reduce the incredibly smooth, fruity and nutty flavours. $165 from the Oamaru cellar door or selected liquor stores. Visit thenzwhisky.com.
