Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Chocolate and raspberry aromas, with rich brioche and stewed cherries.
Palate: Fresh red fruits - cherries and raspberries - combine with sponge-cake mix and cinnamon and a sprinkling of black pepper. Quite a big-flavoured dram, but balanced.
Finish: Sweet spice, red fruits, rich sponge cake.
Nose: Sweet fruit and oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.
Palate: Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours – nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.
Finish: Long and warming.

Very very nice.
I''m just getting into whisky. And of the few I''ve tried this is one of the better ones not too harsh and no after burn, which puts some people off whisky. Like I said before just getting into whisky and I''d say price was about right.
The sherry cask gives this bags of character. I could quite happily while away an evening with a friend and a bottle of this. Enticingly quaffable.
Bourbon like in flavour and very smooth and fruity on the nose. Not too harsh or peaty/earthy as some single malts can be. The Oak Sherry cask gives it a rounded, balanced taste with sweet and fruity notes. Great on its own, with a dash of ice or water, or a glug of cola on the rocks. One of my favourite singles.
Wow! Finally a dram to compare with the Macallan 12 year old Sherry Oak, but at half the price. Needs a drop of water to take the edge off, but quite, quite delicious.
Awesome, one of my favourites. Very moreish. I''m not an expert I drinks what I likes and this is something.
Nose is wonderful, but on the palate I found it to be harsh and very bourban like. Much better options for this price and for cheaper.
Excellent! Tasty, fruity and have enough complexity to give you a good drink. It isn''t ultimate in any level, but what a balance. Still looking for the best, but this is pretty close.
