Nose: instant notes of pears poached in wine. Tangerine and cinnamon. Hints of raspberry and pink grapefruit. Angelica fruit cake with a few floral hints. Not far away from the sherry version. Quite good, but again a bit ‘designed’.

Mouth: sweet and sugary with milk chocolate and molasses. More spices than the other wine finishes (cinnamon and cloves). Not really expressive and definitely too winey overall.

Finish: dying really soon, quite noticeable compared to the others. Oranges and dry oak.

Yeah, I agree. This would be a good whisky to bring someone into the fold, especially if they are a bit of a wine drinker. It's also easy to drink, and (relatively) cheap. So it's good if you wanted a bottle for a 'session' of drinking.

But yeah, it's a little disappointing.

I like it. Complex and smooth. A nice sweetness from the port, a great one for the Session as JD said.
