N: Apricots in an ashtray, tobacco leaf, nutmeg, dry sherry. P: Lots of spicy tobacco, a little cherry medicine. Sherry is oddly dry and spicy. F: Rhubarb and other dirty vegetable notes. Well, ya can't knock it for flavor or complexity, it's got a ton. But it just doesn't work for me.
Fruity, with cherries, and very grapey. It's a deeply sweet scotch with not a whole lot of breadth, but I like what's present quite a bit. Some youthful rough edges add to the experience. A bit of sulfur in the nose is the only real flaw in this uncomplex but very sweet and tasty whisky. B/B+
Well if you like Glenmo and you like sherried whisky, this might be for you. You can certainly get the classic citrus Glenmo notes and then there are the classic sherry chocolate and cherries with a leather and plum palate. Kind of like a blend of two not so great malts to get something that seems blended into a single not so great malt.
The sherry component leans toward stale and musty side. Like a spent or bad cask. Its not terrible, probably because it is finished in sherry casks (not aged 12 years in them) and dont get to sit long enough for those really stale/ musty notes to become too pronounced. C/C+
