I purchased this one as the combo single grain and sherry cask matured is a nice one in many occasions. And this is no exemption! It does need time and temperature to open up and when it does the nose is a tad shy, it’s unmistaken a grain, hard to get through the glue. My experience is that the glueiness will step down with time. But when you taste this it’s pretty impossible not to smile realizing this is pretty darn good for a single cask whisky on full ABV that was released under € 40...! It’s not as full as the 2005 Strathclyde Clan Denny, but there’s some tobacco leafs behind the obvious sherry notes like vigs, raisins, black berry and X mas cake. Funny enough the glue is almost vanished! Finish is what you expect and follows the taste perfect. It’s pretty long for a young grain, (thank you ex sherry cask) and nicely balanced and not to over powered by peppers. Conclusion; thank you Duncan Taylor for bringing this bottle in retail for € 39,90. Remarkable in an age in which ridiculous prices are asked for not even average whisky’s. Maybe in time when the nose opens up this can be scored 88 points. Not too bad for a rather cheap bottle. Get one if you can.
