Nose: quite different with a lot of sherry influence, apple pie, glazed with burnt sugar, dried fruit, cinnamon, clove and a touch of vanilla. deep dark honey, sultana and spice. you can feel some ex-bourbon influence too in addition to the sherry finish which adds a nice depth.

Palate: it’s lovely on the palate. with a nice sweetness, ripe orange, earth, salty, sweet, warming spices, Xmas cake , some chocolate, toffee and a hint of salt – lovely. Finish : Oak, chocolate, ripe orange marmalade, very nice wood notes, tea. Yummy stuff indeed. A very nice sherry oriented dram, with depth. Quite different from the 17 year old it ‘replaces’ , but still very good indeed. If I would be pressed I would choose the 17 by a really narrow margin, maybe since old habits are hard to rid of wink
