    From my drivers pack that I took home from the distillery.
    This along with Famous Grouse Black was included in the tour.
    A shame to serve this as the standard dram to represent them.
    Let's hope I find something more pleasing in the extended tasting samples.

      Sherry notes are more clean and fruitier than on batch #2
      Not as raw, but for those sensitive to sulphor I think there is quite a bit of struck match here. Maybe not as much of the match itself, but rather the striking plate, as there is a dry cardboard note here as well.
      A little wood, a slice of red apple.
      Nothing to write home about, but an OK nose.

      Thin and weak from arrival. And it never really picks up to much more.
      Not much to notice of neither sherry nor fruit.
      It's caramel juice with a hint of bitter wood.

      Slightly dry, a little bitter.
      And there's a strange note of cooked vegetables that I don't fancy too much, but it doesn't last long.
      Not one to sit an savour.

    very simple, not to say, boring whisky. To drink OK, it tastes good, but it really is not fun.
    • Nose
      Starts with strong red berries blended with dark forest honey. Then the oak is already noticeable, nice and spicy.
    • Taste
      easy onset, watery mouthfeel. Honey again. The oak seasoning comes through, even the red berries are back, unfortunately not as strong as you wish. A cooling menthol note is still there.
    • Finish
      Medium. The menthol is still something. The oak is still light. Slightly bitter.

    Nose is subtile sherry with a hint of vanille (Seasoned american oak sherry barrel i guess). Well balanced light sherry nose. Taste and body suffers from a way to low abv, feels watery and the subtile sherry goes to the background, pitty while i think the used barrels are quite good without too much sherry power (starter for getting familiair with sherry whisky, but the lacking of power due to the low abv is a shame).
