N: Big sherry, as expected from the color. P: Medium to dry sherry, fig, red berries. F: Woody notes try to hide behind the massive sherry but still manages to get through. Worth a try based on the huge flavor factor.
The nose is massive sherry, on par with what you'd expect given the natural color. I don't get any sulfur, nice. Dark, dried fruits. The flavor is... well... all I can find to explain is "dry sherry," no matter how much time I spend with the glass. Dry and chewy, this is basically line with many of these 70's heavily-sherried Glen Grants that seem have popped up over the past few years, and though this is good, it isn't one of the excellent ones. Tasty, dry, but no magic. I find myself embarrassed to have so little to say about such a rich (seeming and looking) whisky... yet that in itself sort of says what I want to say anyway.
