On previous sampling of this whisky, I have also found myself tiring of it and happy that I don't have a bottle to get through as it would take a long time.
If I was a betting person I reckon that previous to the VO, this was a pretty unexceptional refill sherry Glen Moray. The VO certainly has boosted it but too much. I have liked Virgin Oak in other bottles where there are other aromas and tastes that don't have to fight too much for your attention. It just doesn't seem to be the case here.
something of the refill sherry tang
sweet but then wow! What is that bitter note - yes it seems like that winey boot polish again
medium; that effect that we will call the VO (bitter shoe polish) is not as overt as it can be but the backdrop of the rest of the whisky is much less significant so it really stands out more.
