It seems Pernod Ricard are on a spending spree.
Whether this will increase the diversity of drinks into the Irish market is yet to play out. Abasolo is not currently available in Ireland – so I picked this one up on a UK visit.
Made with 100% Mexican ancestral corn using historical techniques to boost the flavour – Abasolo piqued my interest from the very start.
The nose exudes a rich, sweet & enticing aroma of toasted corn.
An earthy wholesomeness with added savoury notes peeking through on the palate.
All wrapped up by a pleasing spiciness giving a warm feeling of cosy roastiness slowly fading away.
It’s not very often a whisky just grabs me but –
Abasolo was ‘abasolutely’ fabulous!
