N: Distinctively winey and far more single malt-like than the previous two blends, with a light distillate pong & salty/funkiness. The vanillas take more time to establish.
T: Yes, no, not quite - up and down, bits of this, bits of that. Once settled however its a very tasty drinker indeed with an especially spongy chew. This appears to have a high-malt and sherry-rich content. Could be plenty of Aberfeldy & Aultmore in here.
F: A little smoke now and a short finish overall.
C: Simply delicious! The most modern in style of all the blends tonight with a clear emphasis on vibrant [vanilla] bourbon casks coupled with a driving single malt component. It's a very convincing mix, far superior/in a different league to the 12yo WB that i tried at the Aberfeldy distillery blog last year. Blog.
