Sherry and peat go toe to toe with Smokehead Sherry Bomb! It’s a well-peated single malt from an undisclosed Islay distillery, matured in Oloroso sherry casks, boasting smoke and dried fruit by the truckload. It’s a powerfully flavoursome dram, and unashamedly so.
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.
