Based on 15 year old Westport* finished for six weeks in a 50 litre Pedro Ximinez sherry seasoned octave cask, this is one of two ‘The Bomb’ whiskies (the other being Oloroso finished), both resplendent with an image of Walter White as his hat wearing Heisenberg alter ego. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/01/2014

Appearance

Clear, deep coppery amber with burnished copper highlights.

Aroma

Blackberry, blueberry and boiled sweets with freshly sawn oak, vanilla and faint cinnamon spice. Water releases vanillins from the oak.

Taste

Astringently dry piney oak with sugary sweetness, jammy fruit and peppery spice. Water is needed to wet the oak and reveal spicy fruit.

Aftertaste

Jammy fruit with cinnamon and clove spiced oak. A tad over oaked but this sherry influenced malt likes water.
