Nose
Salt and oak.
Palate
Vanilla, toffee, oil, salt.
Finish
Dry, gingery, spicy, woody.
Comment
For an allegedly light malt, the flavours sing through but, as the dark colour suggests, there really is too much wood.

Nose
The Hyde to the Bourbon barrel's Jekyll. The cleanest, deepest sherry aroma you could ever pray for offering subtle spices and delicate malt. To die for.
Palate
Massively chewy with sherry making all the play. The malty background is off-key by comparison but the nutty, plummy fruit-cake tones win through.
Finish
Medium length and massively fruity.
Comment
An immensely drinkable malt that is the alter ego to its sibling cask.
