Member Ratings and Notes
Well you can definitely taste the sherry!  Not a monster, but it's very prominent and tasty.  Medium-rich palate, medium-length finish.  Pretty good whisky.  B/B+ 
N: Light sherry, but takes a while to find it...
P: Sherry and spice, but not much else.
F: Medium length.
A light and refreshing whisky, but not enough going on to garner a higher rating. 
Smooth and oily, the sherry is immediately noticeable.  Its like a lighter Mac 18, but not quite as good.  
Nice, almost fruity first impression.  Finish is a bit rougher.  Sherry gives it enjoyable sweetness overall.  Solid.  

Sweet nose, but somewhat simple. The taste is as expected from the nose: a pleasant sherry, caramel and oak, but it's not spectacular. This is a very good whisky...but there are just a number of others that do this same thing better. Consider this a poor man's Mac 18. Given their respective price points, that's not bad!

High notes are sugary, but base is a nicely sharp whiskey. Liquid caramel. 
Bourbon aged with a sherry finish.  Usually works and usually works exactly to this extent.  Fine to drink but not really worthy of excitement. 

n: orange peel covered in white chocolate, dried tropical fruit with rum soaked raisins.


t: sherry is more prevalent in the taste, prunes and dried cherries with a bit of waxy milk chocolate in the initial sip. Light spice with the oak and caramel appearing in the middle. A sweet vanilla finish that is thin. Nothing really comes together here, and the notes hit at odd times. (B-/C+.)
