Tasting Notes by Megawatt
Nose: not as expressive as I recall. Lots of sherry in the form of grape. A bit of malt. Pleasant overall.
Taste: Big-time sherry up front. A bit hot and tangy mid-palate. Again, a little less lively than I remember previous bottlings had been.
Finish: a nice fruity tang. None of the sour notes I find in some sherried malts.
Balance: This was my go-to budget malt but now I think I would prefer Glenfiddich 12. Still a fine whisky in its own right, though.
