Big sherry on the nose. The palate is dessert, big sweet, sherry notes and vanilla, like a bread pudding with creme Anglaise, then gets drier leading into a finish of dry sherry notes.  This is a pretty flawless sherry malt.

Great fruit bomb.  Both preserved and fresh fruit with nice notes of smoke and wood.  Quaffable.

Classic sherried Speyside profile, on the sweeter and less earthy side compared to recent 25's.

Good and classic Macallan sherry but just not punchy-enough for me. Plenty of tropical fruits and really sweet texture - but needs about 6-10 ABV points to get this to where it needs to be. Again, could chug this one.

Gorgeous nose. Obvious sheery influences and some grape/brandy notes to me as well. A nice drinker, but fairly straightfoward. Some tannins, lacking a little in richness to me. Overall, an excellent whisky though. [12/11/15]
