Mashbill: 100% Malted Barley

Cask Type: Sherry Cask
Chill Filtered: Yes
Color Added: No
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn.
Nose: Sherried malt and candied almonds. A bit of dried fruit and ginger with chocolate and citrus.
Palate/Taste: Raisins and fig, with sherry and dried banana. Milk chocolate and vanilla with a touch of oak.
Finish: Medium length with caramel and ginger being most predominant, slight fruitiness
Thoughts: It tastes Macallan 12, in a fancy overpriced bottle, and my score reflects this. It’s not bad, but for $50 less you can get Macallan 18, (Which is also overpriced) a dram with far more complexity and deep sherry.
