Pe2

Islay single malt scotch whisky

Despite its dark colour, this is a different beast to Pe1. Matured in a refill sherry butt, the cask influence is lighter than in its predecessor, but it’s still a sherry monster. A drop of water calms things down, revealing a dram packed with dark fruit and elegant smokiness.

Pe2 Reviews

  • I’m in a moral dilemma here. There were and still are many ‘better’ sherried PEs around in my opinion but this one displays many unusual and interesting aspects.
