Description

Distillery 128 is barely two decades old and has already made an indelible mark on the whisky world. Cask 128.13 hails all the way from Wales, where this distillery re-started Welsh whisky distilling in 2000 after a century of silence. Most of their casking is into ex-bourbon barrels, but some of their exotic offerings of ex- Port, ex-rum, and in this case ex-sherry bring some considerable heft and wild flavours to the glass. Members around the world rightly jump on these syrupy monsters at every opportunity, and you’d be mad not to consider this for your festive lunch this year!

Have you ever filled your empty PET plastic bottle with young amontillado sherry at a petrol station? If you haven’t, head to Jerez de la Frontera as soon as you can! The palate neat started off with plenty of heat and a bit of salt but then soon evolved into a strawberry and banana flambé with butterscotch sauce. When we added plenty of water and gave it a little time to rest an almost perfect classic sherry cobbler cocktail emerged – oloroso and PX sherry, ‘blackstrap’ rum, maraschino liqueur, fresh pineapple and lime juice. Refreshing, long and fruity with a hint of that salty-savoury-earthy note typical for that kind of rum.
