Terminado brings together Smokehead Islay single malt with tequila. It’s the meeting of 2 restless spirits – and the awakening of a mesmerising whisky. There, on this tequila cask finish, fiery peat awakes with wild agave. You ain’t tasted nothing like this before.
The primary impression: Peaty smoke struts with vanilla and shortbread. Almonds mix with chewy meringue. Blood orange stirs with burnt sugar. And barbecued pineapple brings a surprise move.
The whole-on flavour: A insurrection of smoke and citrus. Peat and malt go toe-to-toe with toffee, lime spins with peach, and citrus balances perfectly with burnt corn-on-the-cob.
The finale: The finish is long and sweet with a gentle heat. With a dash of citrus and sprinkle of pepper. Nevertheless it’s still no longer the tip. There’s all the time time for every other dance.
