Member Ratings and Notes
Better than the G&M 40 year.  More fruit and balance.  More complexity.  The sherry is more present on the palate, the fruit in the nose.  Not bad for $75.  But it still has that tar bite in the finish -- not good tar.    
Sherry nose.  Sherry palate.  Sherry finish.  And I like it!  Okay, there's a little more than that... some oranges and citrus stuff in the palate, with lots of dried fruits (thank you sherry), varied floral wisps, and caramel.  Basic sherry yummy tastiness.  B/B+ 
Cherry and flowered nose.  Palate is burnt toffee. 
Sweet and spicey with cherries and some chocolatey warmth going on.  Then it turns to creme soda and cola after a few minutes.  Interesting and nice but not great.  Fair price for a 25 year though. 
Similar to the 40 year, the wood is less pronounced (which is good) but the other flavors are also more muted (not so good).   Still, an enjoyable malt. 

Nose: Mulling spice, ginger.

Palate:  Honey and spice

Finish: Dry and spicy.
