Day 5 - The English, Smokey PX Cask Matured

Wednesday whisky wishes folks!

I've got an absolutely perfect hump-day evening dram lined up today, the fifth dram from our "A Very Sherry Whiskymas" Christmas box, and something a little different from the 4 we've seen so far.

Before that, if you don't know what 25 Days of Drams is, then catch up with our introduction and drop in on any days you've missed here.

Don't forget to answer the survey after signing up so we can make the advent calendar of your drams next year...

 

So, what is Day 5's dram-based delight? It's The English, Smokey PX Cask Matured, and it is perfect for a comforting winter warmer.

Here's me with the festive low down:

Recap: For each day of the 25 (we're Christmas day drammers here at the Dram Team), I'm going to give a few brief reasons I think each dram is worth your time and attention - which are the same reasons I picked each one to be in our boxes in the first place. And, we're giving away the full set of drams:

Reasons why Chris recommends this whisky:

Reason 1 - It's an English single malt whisky! English whisky is undergoing somewhat of a renaissance lately, with many new distilleries opening around the country, but few actually have whisky available yet (they are too young). St George's Distillery, conversely, are now 10 years into production and putting out some cracking whiskies.

Reason 2 This small batch limited edition is now sold out - so our box might be your last chance to try a drop of it (though look out online for bottles, there might still be some in the wild!).

Reason 3 - It is the absolutely perfect combination of warm woody smokiness and lovely rich, fruity, spicy sherry flavours. Really the perfect winter warmer, and perfect for a fireside Christmas dram.
