The nose has very sweet sherry notes, like a Spanish brandy. The palate is a massive hit of dry sherry with lemon rind and vanilla which ends in a deep sherry finish. Given that this is a grain whiskey, I wasn't expecting a lot from it, but I really like it, maybe even more than the malt. It might taste more akin to a brandy de Jerez (or just sherry) than a whiskey, but it's very tasty and I like those drier sherry notes. It's also fun to drink in tandem with the Malt, just to note the differences.
