    Nose: A bit dusty and old-school at first. Some generic sherry notes. After sitting for a little bit the sweetness from the grain starts to show. Slightly citrusy.

    Palate: excellent mouthfeel, waxy and rich. Fruitcake, salted caramel, candied pecans, flat cherry Coke, vanilla ice cream, black coffee.

    Finish: Sweet and creamy grain. Relatively long and lingering. Cinnamon sticks and vanilla syrup. Hints of Oloroso.

    Overall: The blend is a bit more subdued than the last handful of batches of the WMC 12 blend. It isn’t as sherry driven, but does taste a bit more well-rounded. The grain notes are also more prominent than the WMC 12. To me, it tastes like there is some Ben Nevis and Tomatin in here (I could be completely wrong, but I’m getting some serious Ben Nevis vibes). The grain is very reminiscent of some of the recent Cadenhead’s Girvan bottlings (9, 12, and 13) that are all fairly creamy in my opinion. For £35 it’s a great deal. It's an easy drinker with a fair bit of complexity.
