Whisky Reviews for Smokehead Sherry Bomb IM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.38 points

  1. chrizthewiz scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Nose: A very coastal, saline and youthful peatiness first jumps out the glas, followed by leathery and herbal sherry. A minty and somehow artifical, rubbery sweetness that reminds me of Kids' toothpaste. A bit weird, but hey, it works… These were definetly not some old, vintage Bodega sherry casks. Roasted cashews and salted peanuts, a few raisins, a bag of trail mix. After some time in the glas, it gets more “one”. The aromas come together and create a nice, modern sherried Islay Malt.

    Taste: Sturdy arrival on astringent peat and leather. Licking a flintstone on the beach (I did many weird things as a kid). A funky, nutty and slightly chemical sherry flavour flashes up before the herbal and dry peatiness takes over again.

    Comments: Obviously, this is young stuff. I expected that, when I ordered the bottle. But I have to say, it’s really fun to sip. Leave the pricetag aside and you get a decent, very modern take on Islay and sherry. This one shouldn’t be taken too seriously (it’s definetly NOT a sherry bomb), just crack the bottle and enjoy it with friends. This is a session malt like the younger Port Askaigs, Classic of Islay or Ileach Cask Strength for example. I like it. /86

    • Nose
      81 81
      Aromatic smoke ... sweet fruity ... then comes through a phenolic note. A mix of laphroaig and bowmore darkest.
    • Taste

      Earthy ... peaty ... with a sweet ...
    • Finish
