  1. Whisk(e)yCharlie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sherry sweetness and rubber. Stewey dark fruits. Maybe more than rubber, it's actually ester-y. Very dense. Raisin. Some funk. Reminds of a bigger Glendronach 18
    • Taste
      Rich, but texturally not so thick. Pretty mild-mannered and smooth. Rolling it around the palate brings out a lot more ester notes. Oloroso.
    • Finish
      Flavor really grows in the finish. Sherry bomb territory. Christmas spices. Syrupy sweet. Long. Not too much development. But shows its not strong, and keeps showing it off. Good spices. Malt is fairly hidden by the cask.
