The allure of this single malt whiskey lies behind its slow fermentation and artisanal distillation that relies on multiple rounds of barreling and blending to get the flavors just right. If you are looking for cheap alcohol in NZ, buy the whiskey online for NZD69.99 at LiquorMart.co.nz
16-Year-Old Muirhead’s Single Malt Whiskey

But for Kiwis with a tooth for quality whiskey, barley sugar and toffee with a clue of peat and smoke will not go unnoticed. A bottle of this Scottish single malt whiskey will set you back only NZD82.99; that is, if you buy your whiskey online.
