Nomad Outland Whisky (the Sophisticated Traveler) is born in the Highlands of Scotland, principally from Speyside and aged in Jerez, Spain. There, it is left to soak up the natural aspects of this special micro-climate giving Nomad its quintessential Scottish character and a soul that is truly Jerezano. Scotch Whiskies, specially selected by master blender Richard Paterson have been shipped to this historic Andalucian city, where under the watchful eye of González Byass master blender Antonio Flores, they are left to age in Pedro Ximénez barrels in the unique micro-climate of Jerez.
Nomad Outland Whisky is crafted for consumers looking to be inspired by a unique marriage of global flavors.
Nomad Outland (82.6 proof)
Visual: Medium light gold.
Nose: A ton of lovely sherry on the nose. Elegant, stately and invigorating. Below that lies a solid, not-too-malty whisky that has just the right amount of wood.
Taste: The slightly higher proof, cause the whisky to come through as the leader, while the sherry plays a more subtle role. The flavors run from salted caramel to toasted hazelnut.
Finish: Medium long with a sherry sweetness adding an engagingly 19th century appeal.
Overall: Very nice and a solid whisky. The concept works well to bring what would be a traditional Scottish technique further afield to age under quite different conditions.
GSN Rating: A
