To be honest this isn't one of those malts I'd pick up on my own.. maybe that is partially because of my ignorance about the distillery and its offering and probably because with a limited wallet I have other preferences. Nevertheless I can't say that this expression did too much to change my mind.

The nose which was probably the highlight of this dram and definitely did its best to build a case in its favor. It had some lovely notes of dates covered with honey and some real nice orange marmalade in there as well greeting your the nose as soon as you stepped in. I would think some of this sweetness was courtesy the PX Cask that this one was matured in. There were also some mild spice notes in the mix. The more you let it breath it the more it became a very stereotype Speyside-ish nose.. So very good.. but not awesome!

The palate was where the PX didn't stand by this expression and didn't impart any sweetness that i was hoping to find somewhere. What I did find instead was some ginger and more of those mild spice notes like the nose and some orange peels.. which isn't too pleasant either to be honest.

Finally the finish was a medium one with some lingering spice notes and a dryish after taste which probably came from the Sherry.

Would I buy it at USD 150?... Maybe not...
