2. Nomad

Nomad-Outland-WhiskyThe worlds of Spain and Scotland collided last year when González Byass teamed up with The Dalmore master distiller Richard Paterson to launch Nomad.

Made in Scotland using “principally Speyside” whiskies but aged in Pedro Ximénez barrels in González Byass’ Jerez cellars in Spain, the expression is said to “challenge perceptions of whisky”.

Over 30 single malt and grain whiskies of between five and eight years were selected by Paterson to blend and age in Sherry butts in Scotland for a further three years. The resulting liquid was then shipped to Jerez to mature for a further 12 months.

The whisky is described as having a “quintessential Scottish character and a soul that is truly Jerezano”, with a flavour of glazed oranges, marzipan, and berries.
