: A warm goldNose
: Sherry, sweet fruits, a mix of soft tones (I can see why folk have said vanilla) and harder ones (spicy notes) blending together. I really like this, it smells fantastic and really inviting. Palate
: What you'd expect after nosing with no particular surprises. In truth, after the riot of enticing elements of the nose, the taste is a touch disappointing. Finish
: Fairly short and not too exciting. At the end the sweetness is lost for more spicy slightly peppery quality but overall it's a touch disappointing for me.
A decent and balanced SMW to my mind, but it reminds me that when I'm fancying something sherried, why I'm a massive fan of The Macallan
