NOMAD OUTLAND WHISKY
This time, the eight-year-old blend is finished in Ilegal Mezcal casks (Bacardi owns a minority stake in Ilegal). While you might assume this would bring a great deal of smoke to the palate, it's really only a wisp that curls around other flavors like caramel, butterscotch, and bright citrus. Overall, this is a nice sipping whisky that would also work quite well in a simple drink like a highball. Nomad is an innovative new concept in whisky – Outland Whisky. Nomad is created with a unique ageing process beginning in Scotland and finishing in Jerez. The bourbon cask influences are evident in the distinctive spice and vanilla flavors, but act as a nice compliment to the sherry finish notes. The two sherries offset each other nicely, adding nuts and dried fruit notes from the Oloroso and the sweet, golden raisin notes of the PX. That sweetness is nicely balanced and well integrated, and is free of the cloying, syrupy sweetness that can sometimes accompany PX finishes. The alcohol is smooth with a satisfying warmth, and is reminiscent of a fine Spanish brandy.Highly recommended. If you are a fan of Spanish brandy, like a sweeter Scotch, and appreciate the added complexity that a sherry finish provides, then you will find Nomad Outland Whisky an excellent addition to a “Scotch” whisky library even if it is not technically a Scotch. If your tastes run towards “peat monsters,” then it’s best to look elsewhere.
Whiskey Review: Nomad Outland - The Whiskey Wash
This pad thai recipe isn’t authentic, but it’s so good and insanely simple to put together you won’t even care At the beginning malty-grainy. Gentle, no alcohol noticeable. First, spend a few minutes in the glass. Then fruity, and slight echoes of oak.Not technically a Scotch whisky (since the final barrel aging and bottling takes place outside of Scotland), Nomad Outland is a blend of around 30 malt and grain whiskies from the Speyside region of Scotland (where Macallan, The Glenlivet, Aberlour and other classics are based). They age in ex-bourbon casks in northern Scotland between two and five years, then transfer to ex-Oloroso sherry casks for three more years. And then the blend travels to Jerez, Spain (sherry’s ancestral home) to rest another year in very freshly seasoned ex-Pedro Ximénez casks in the Nomad cellars of the González Byass wineries.

Nomad Outland Whisky | Master of Malt
This is a nice smooth warming christmas cake of a dram where he cook good distracted and kept pouring.. You could drink this all night.... i might just do that. A bit of Greek brandy in the flavour profile, PX sweetness and so much sherry its hard to compare.. Great value for money. It’s not just the soaking wet freshness of the recently dumped sherry that adds magic to the juice — Spain’s increased heat and humidity means the whisky is spending more time getting absorbed into and influenced by the sherry-soaked oak than it does in chilly Scotland.Sherry butt aging/finishing has been the exception when it comes to blended Scotch, although it is not unheard of. There are a few notable examples of the style:
