Peat's Beast Pedro Ximénez Finish
This Peat's Beast is not only cask strength but also finished in Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks. By doing so, Fox Fitzgerald have added a whole new dimension to this monster!
Tasting Note by Richard Paterson: So we have the familiar hints of peppery peat smoke, damp burnt bracken and the salty notes of seaweed. But Peat's Beast Sherry gives you more. There are subtle sweet notes of dates and figs with the sweet hues of Spanish Sherry; an absolute juxtaposition between dry peat smoke and rum and raisin ice cream, a quite sublime dram. Nose: Damp smoke, peat, TCP, seaweed then morphing into sweet syrupy burnt sugar notes from the Sherry cask. Palate: A real peat bite but wrapped in a gorgeous warm coat of dates, figs, hints of clove and vanilla. Finish: The peat fire stays at the back of the throat but there are strong notes of chocolate, sweet rum and raisin ice cream, burnt caramel. Incredibly long finish.
