Nose
Heavily sherried. Dark wood. Walnut stain. Nutmeg, cloves. Marasquino cherries. Raisins. Beautiful concentration. An Oxtail broth note.
Palate
Sweet at start then bitter. Oak is overwhelming. Burnt caramel. Walnut loaf. Molasses. Oak, oak and oak.
Finish
Bitter and spicy.
Comment
A style of whisky which has its fans. But that oak infusion masks the distillery character and the essence of whisky for me. Sad, as the nose is interesting.

Nose
Classic sherried notes: think cheese rind, sappiness, walnut and a sweetness that brings to mind a mix of damson and molasses.
Palate
Rounded with sufficient supple weight to balance the tannin. This means instead of being butter it's fruity and sweet with a chewy, rather than hard, quality.
Finish
Long and deep.
Comment
A classic sherried whisky. Glendronach at 15 Years Old? Perfection. Macallan beware.
