    Sherry bomb which is both a good thing and a bad thing. Not much distillery character left. 

    When looking at another sherry bomb bottled for Juuls Vinhandel, I would prefer Flying Pigs (Balmenach) over this bottling. That said, it is still solid. 
    • Nose
      Rasins, figs, modelling wax (where did that come from?), vegetables, liquorice and rum. 
    • Taste
      Powerful sherry and it reminds me of one of the "Probably Speyside's Finest (Glenfarclas) bottling from Douglas Laing. Improves with water. 
    • Finish
      Apples, pears, cinnamon, pineapples and raisins.
