Show rating data charts
Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: A medium sherry influence with dried fruits, as well as vanilla and oak. Some sweetness mixed in as well. All very well balanced.
Palate: Malty and sweet, and lightly spiced, with noticeable drying on the tongue.
Finish: Balanced on the finish, just as on the nose. It’s probably just the oak/malt combination, but in the nostrils, I could swear there’s a hint of Highland Park style smoke that lingers for a while.
Bottom Line: I’m very impressed with this expression, and purchased a backup bottle when it was on sale locally. This is not a "sherry bomb" by any means. It offers a complex, balanced alternative to other big sherry Glenfarclas offerings.
