Not overly sweet, and quite mild in that regard. Then there's waves of moderately rich flavors of grapey aspects and maybe molasses hints. I'd think this was quite sherried if I didn't know otherwise. Tasty.
This is pretty fantastic. A great sweet nose of butterscotch/vanilla, reminiscent of Werther's candies, with some spice. Initially sweet, then spicy and dry. Extremely interesting in the mouth. A warm but spicy finish. This is my favorite of the Benriach wood finished 15 year olds. Highly unique, definitely recommended.
Not a fan of Madeira finishes and this one falls right in line with so many others. Too obviously finished as the winey notes are just cover for an average whisky. Still....it is drinkable and might work on a shelf as a novelty.
