The aroma of this one neat drew us deeper and deeper into the glass – we were sucked in and felt we were losing control as words like epic, wow and unbelievable were uttered. We just had to try it and it was breath-taking. Have you ever enjoyed traditional Hawaiian cooking called Kalua - where a hardwood fire is built inside a pit and a whole pig gets roasted over it for hours and hours? Add a drop of water and we felt it was like a jötunn potion, perfect to warm up after skinny-dipping on a cold moonlit night. After eight years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill PX Sherry hogshead.
