Color: Autumn Brown

Nose: Sherry and dried fruits come off first, followed by figs and slivers of black currant.

Taste: A bite of sherry to quickly replaced by oak. Raisins and dates are the main mouthful with a linger of black cherry.

Finish: Slightly warm with sherry influence a welcome reappearance. Much to short.

Overall: I really wanted to love this one, but it comes off as an average scotch to me. More time aging or more time in sherry casks would have helped it I think. I also am aware I sampled the lower proof version and the previous was 46%, that too may have helped this rise above average.

Score: 72/100
