Tasting Notes

Nose

Light, malty and vaguely citric, the weight is supplied by some soft sherry tones spoiled slightly by a tad too much sulphur.

Palate

Immediate flavour explosion of quite fabulous sweet, buttery malt and richer sherry tones. Just a hint of smoke fills out the middle.

Finish

Caramel, sherry and liquorice make for a rich finish. The drier vanillins come in at the death.

Comment

To taste, this is a lively malt of pleasing depth. Only the nose somewhat spoils the show.
