Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: strong vanilla and a whole heap of classic sherry cask notes like almonds, a little cherry, chocolatey sweetness and oranges. A very gentle saltiness and something like toasted hazelnuts. This dram is ever so slightly oily and underpinned by a delicate wood-smoke that provides great contrast.
Palate: confirms the nose with vanilla, red berries, cinnamon spice and milk chocolate. Really good structure and very drinkable, the smoke holds well.
Finish: good, persistent smoke gives a long and dry finish that closes off the sumptuous mid-palate with aplomb.
Really good whisky this, and it goes down very easily indeed!
