I would have this when tending to the barbecue, even chuck some over the meat as it cooks. Awesome stuff.
Pedro Ximenez, Single Malt Whisky
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Barbecued meats and sauce. Chilli and ginger-marinated chicken, thick sliced rump steak and garlic prawns all grilled over cherry wood.
Palate: That meat-laden barbecue comes flooding in, but also sweetness with blackberry compote and fig jam. Pork crackling and apple sauce.
Finish: All that smoke and sweetness wraps together and dries, leaving crispy bacon and tomato sauce.
Comment: I would have this when tending to the barbecue, even chuck some over the meat as it cooks. Awesome stuff.
Nose: Smoky and meaty, like opening a fresh pack of jerky, or tucking into barbecued pulled pork. It’s briny, a touch sulphury and rubbery, but with sweetness from PX sherry, currants and Christmas pudding.
Palate: Meaty still, both in texture and flavour. Rich sherry (water releases a touch more sweetness and sulphur), bitter currrants, citrus peel and Marmite.
Finish: Lingering smoked meats.
Comment: A very savoury whisky that could easily be mistaken for a Scotch malt.
