Nose: Sherry, Rancio, big fruit, Brazil nut shells, very pleasant indeed.
Palate: Sherry fruit, date, walnut, rye spice, bubblegum, dries slightly.
Finish: Touch of peppermint, the cask definitely makes itself known – maybe slightly over the hill, but all in all a pretty good finish.
Overall: A ‘good’ whisky. There’s one true test of whether a whisky is ‘good enough’, and that’s whether or not you’d reach for another glass. This is, and I did.
