Ehhh. An easy-drinker for something so sherried, except it's not that great. Something that I'd be happy to find being served at a wedding (other than Dewars, Chivas, etc), but I don't know that I'd seek it out otherwise.
Sherry aged and then finished in bourbon (opposite of most double ages). This has some of the classic Glendronach flavors – butter and spices on the nose but they seem to masked by the vanillas and the sharper oak tannins and hay from the bourbon barrel. Too light and easy. Finish was there and gone making me wonder if I actually had this in my mouth a second ago…. I like the creamy notes and the smooth texture but the spirity oak takes over the great Glendronach sherry that I love. This is the old Allied style and the new owners are discontinuing it which is a good idea in my book. C+
