Nose
Quite soapy and oily with rye-like herbal sherry and intense, gritty tannins. The richness of the malt balances the dryness of the cask well though.
Palate
Quite sweet and herbal with plenty of clean, softer, slightly toffeed sherry oak. Full but relatively straightforward.
Finish
A little dry and tannic with lingering spices and hints of chocolate and coffee.
Comment
I can't say I'm getting much Highland character here, but as sherry monsters go, it's ok.

Nose
Sweet and sour sauce, pineapple and red apple. Waxy and oily with great body to it. Honey and lavender. Really very complex and juicy.
Palate
Juicy Fruit chewing gum, tropical fruits and fresh coconut flesh. Underneath the fresh tones there is a hint of a clove and white chocolate. Some tonka bean, which adds body.
Finish
More runny honey and pineapple juice, and then a big hit of watermelon, all of which leave you wanting more.
Comment
A really fantastic, fruity dram which reminds me of the first time I tried Jolly Rancher sweets. Great balance, great flavours.
