Very first-fill-y, not all that old and consequently a bit brash and uncouth, but (and bear in mind that this is a big "but") this is by far the best of the three batches that have been released so far.
Nice sherry nose; fruity and nutty at the same time. Beneath that, citrus, cookie dough, and baking spices. Lastly (and very faintly), a hint of florals, perhaps due to the use of sherry-seasoned casks made from American oak. The nose is a real crowd pleaser.
The palate faithfully reproduces what the nose already announced: a sherry bomb with some fresh, fruity, floral Speyside characteristics. Definitely front-loaded; pretty much the whole experience takes place initially and then keeps on reverberating, with few new elements joining in at later stages.
Some additional aging would've been nice, but (again:) this inaugural batch is certainly the best and most mature of the three CS batches they've put out so far. Worth it if you can get it for under 60 €, I'd say. The recent Glendronach cask strength releases, which are similarly priced, have the upper hand here for sure though. Superior spirit, it's as simple as that.
