Member Ratings and Notes
Heavy cream and caramel. Light and easy. Soft hay and grass notes.  Short finish except for the warmth.  Not much else to say.  Rather similar to so many others.  B/B-.  Just barely a B 
N: Bright, lots of apples, some white wine notes.  Smells very Linkwood (tasted blind).
P: Pops on that apple fruit note, but with some buttery roasted notes, or maybe caramel apple.  Medium oily.
F: Finishes with a little wood spice over the fruit.
I concur with Dave, its a low B.  (Well, it wasn't a Linkwood, but sure has the profile.) 
Seems like it was finished in a wine (white) cask.  Pepperyness lingers in the finish but the flavors don't.  Thin.  Seems awfully boring for a 25 year old <cough cough fifth fill cough>.  I likes my Grants in sherry! 

Tasted Blind


N: waxy, peanut oil, chalk and kiwi

P: oily, green apples, citrus and nutty

F: medium bitter finish
