Islay single malt brand Smokehead has launched Sherry Bomb, an ‘explosive’ limited edition mystery malt fully matured in oloroso Sherry casks.
The ‘heavily peated’ Smokehead Sherry Bomb is a no-age-statement whisky bottled at 48% abv.
Iain Weir, brand director for Smokehead, said: ‘It’s not for everyone, but if you’re after a bold, peaty whisky that’s been blasted by rich Sherry casks, this is the taste explosion you’ve been waiting for.’
Nose: Dark chocolate, seaweed, a hint of medicinal peat smoke, prunes and clove.
Palate: BBQ smoke, stem ginger, sherried peels, sea salt, rum-raisin ice cream.
Finish: Clove, red chilli flake, treacle.
