    Balance is impeccable, which may be why they choose to water it down to 46% (24/25)

    This whisky shows that sometimes aged isn't everything.  While I would
    have loved it to be cask strength, this has a wonderful finish
    reminiscent of some sherry bombs out there just a bit sweeter.  If this is a refill, what ever whisky was in before this must not have
    been in there long, as there is a ton of sherry character in this
    Scotch.
    • Nose
      Nice mix of sherry and new make flavors.  From the younger spirit there are green apples, and pineapple, from the surprisingly noticeable sherry profile, some nice spices, and figs, and raspberry jam.  Also a very nice brown sugar note and vanilla note.  ( 22/25)
    • Taste
      Subdued compared to the nose, a lot of the brown sugar, vanilla, and spice notes of the sherry.  not that many fresh flavors but if you can imagine a slightly thinned out and sweeter MacAllan 12 year old (sherry casks), you have a good idea of what this is like. (23/25)
    • Finish
       Think the spices, the darker fruits, and a nice brown sugar and vanilla sweetness.     ( 22/25)
