Member Ratings and Notes
Warming and citrusy, reminds me of Chivas Royal Solute, but not as good.  A little too thick and syrupy. 
This had some mild sherry in the nose, a little dried fruit, mint.  Some apricot and sugar sweetness on the palette.  BUtter, sugar, raspberries. Finish goes to coffee grinds. 
Nice sherried malt with some grassy/hay earthiness that comes forth in the finish.  Better than the 12 year and not much more expensive.  A solid Sherry to have in the cabinet. 

Nose: Light and dull.

Palate:little bit of oatmeal with a wood finish finish (ie, it finishes like a wood finish)


Not offensive, but I can't help but think that Balvenie did the doublewood thing a little better.


Retry 1/20/15   C+


n: Red Jolly Ranchers, vanilla cake batter, ripe bing cherries, and a bit of dark chocolate. Raspberry Jello-O topped with whipped cream.


t: Nice malt with a sherry & oaky influence, but light and on the candy side. Mid-palatte is thin and mostly of red fruit candy and a slight sour note fades to warm tobacco leaf and Fig Newtons. Finishes malty and dry with a little spice.  [C+/B-]
