Peat's Beast PX Sherry Wood Finish + GB 54,1%
Pedro Ximenez Sherry Finish
A Peat's Beast that gets a 9 month “finish” in PX sherry casks. This combines the power of the Peat's Beast with the softer and sweeter characteristics of sherry. As a result, the aroma starts with powerful smoke, peat and seaweed, which gradually turns into sweet, syrupy burnt sugar from the sherry cask. The taste also has the peppery, smoky, seaweed flavors familiar to peat's beast, but wrapped in a sweet jacket of dates, figs and raisins. The finish is extremely long.
This Batch Strength release of Peat's Beast has been matured for nine months in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, creating a layer of fruity spice amid the waves of rich peat smoke on the nose. The palate offers notes of dates, figs, seaweed, black pepper, burnt bracken and vanilla that linger in the finish.
Nose: Earthy peat smoke alongside dark jammy fruits, with baking spice and oily malt. Palate: Medicinal, maritime peat, with date and vanilla sweetness, butterscotch and spicy black pepper. Finish: Cooked plum lingers alongside toasty oak.
