New Zealand Whisky Company Oamaruvian 16 year old
Aged for six years in American Oak, ex-bourbon, and finished for twelve years in French Oak, ex-red wine barrels. Bottled at cask strength.
The aroma is a bold port-soaked raisins followed by dark cherries, cloves and various stone fruits. Water and time brings out pecan praline, almonds and balsamic reduction glaze. A vibrant taste of dried fruits, including dried cherries and strawberries, intertwined with almonds and nutmeg leading to a palate covering liquorice sweetness spiked with anise. On the finish there is a slightly drying and energetic see-saw between the spice and sweetness experienced. Somewhat acidic on the tongue, but it carries a very pleasant balance along the drawn out port-like finale.
