N: Light, slightly musty and malty, earthy and woody. A little white wine presence. Some slight vanilla. Hints of cantaloupe, a bit of pineapple and pear.

 

P: Nice and mouth-coating, a gentle white pepper ehat. Woody, malty, a little musty again. Some pears, a little bit of cantaloupe. Late heat in the form of cinnamon. Light vanilla. Very light sherry notes. 
 
F: Warm initially. Pears, lightly estery, vanilla, malt and wod.
 
Jubilee Malt I is the clear winner. This isn't bad (and I might say "for the price"), but it's kind of anonymously OK. There are zillions of bottles like this on the shelf.

Nose:  light and malty.

Palate:  sweet sherry, candied fruit, ending on oak.

Finish:  The late palate oak and then a bit of a tannic note.

 

Pleasant stuff.
