Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of toffee, figs, and sherry.  Palate is ooh, good.  Caramel and toffee tastyness without being heavy.  Moderately sweet, sherried, with a typical whisky spice profile, and full -- yet it doesn't make me full-feeling (in a good way).  The sherried flavor is somewhat familiar, but in a very tasty and medium-rich way.  If the finish didn't grow as dry as it does -- becoming medium-bitter -- this would be a much better single malt.  I think this suffers from too much wood.  Still good though. 

N: Sweet and sour.  Inner part of sourdough bread (crumb)

P: Gentle sweetness with tangy fruit (white grape and kiwi)

F: Fleeting finish with fudge

Sherry, oak, fruits on the nose, some wine/fruit on the palate.  Pretty thin for me, but really nice.  Not too much finish. 

note: sample code 2L7F901


n: Caramel and milk chocolate.  Hint of lemon


p: Cereal and plums.  Fresh lumber.  Nice and easily quaffable although ultimately forgettable.
