Oh, now there’s a surprise! Well, what isn’t a surprise is getting a very good bang-for-your-money blend, we’re used to getting pampered like that by Cadenhead’s, but it was a nice, surprising experience for me. At first it was a “very good” blend on the nose – a bit closed down and complex, as any good blend should be. But then there was the palate, improving upon the nose, providing a refreshingly unmodern (well, the youngest whisky is 36 years old, after all…) whisky. No overpowering vanilla, no sickly sweet sherry smothering the palate, just a very good balance of a sherried dram with spices, oranges, dried fruits and well-balanced oak. Very good indeed!
