Tasting Notes by jwise
Nose: sherry notes are the first to come out, followed by just a touch of smoke, balanced by a hint of saltiness.
Body: Medium-light body
Palate: The saltiness that was perceptible on the nose comes out a bit, bringing pepper into the mix. It is noticeably missing the big sherry notes that I would expect from this whisky. Where did the butterscotch, caramel and vanilla go? Perhaps I am tasting this on a bad day, and something I have eaten has changed this whisky's profile. All I know is that I am disappointed.
Finish:The finish is long, with slight sherry notes coming out.
