    For me, the eternal beginner, because I feel what I feel without knowing or distinguishing the flavours. But one thing I know, what is good for me. I feel this is a quality malt whisky, sophisticated and refined. reminds me somehow glengoyne 21 as happened with the Macallan 12 Fine Oak that reminds me the glengoyne 12. This Macallan 12 Sherry Cask is sweet, complex, medium to long finish with reminiscence of bourbon, good malt flavour. And also is too expensive for me. I still prefer Glengoyne, for my taste has open flavours while refined and sophisticated too and less expensive.

    Simply one of the finest Single Malts @ this price point. Drinks like one that's much pricier. The Sherry takes a backseat to a subtle sweetness and dark fruits. Slight spice and oak round out the experience. Top notch!

    A little pricy, but worth it. Very smooth. The sherry influence is wonderful. Nice medium length finish.

    This is the best non peated scotch I've had. A very nice thick syrupy scotch. Spice sherry and fruit. Perfect.

    Honestly, this scotch is only okay at first taste. It's sweet and has an orange citrus taste. But after the initial, there is a tobacco taste that hangs in your mouth. I don't smoke so it surprised me that I enjoyed this taste. The finish has a spicy burn that is actually very enjoyable as long as you don't take too big of a drink. Too pricey for me for this scotch.

    This is an excellent whisky although not the be all-end all many claim it to be. Thoroughly enjoyable. The heavy sherried quality gives it a syrupy kind of sweetness that, much like a heavily peated whisky I have to be in the mood for. Great after dinner dram especially after a big steak. Highly recommended but try others in the same price range and you will be pleasantly surprised about how many great whiskies there are in this price range. This applies especially to us Americans who seem to this this is "it".

    On the nose I can smell vanilla, dried fruit, and the sherry sweetness on the spot! On the palate it's wonderful; it's spicy but also sweet like honey. You can definitely taste the sherry and the dried fruit instantly. It's the smoothest whiskey I've had so far. It's much better than the Macallan 15yo old. 5 Stars!!
