A lovely, soft and clean nose with gentle, ever so slightly leafy sherry fruit. Some creamy vanilla, barley and grassy distillery characteristics just about poke their heads through and wonderfully balance out the sherry. With time the depth of malty rich fruit become apparent.

The palate is soft and slightly sweet, although in a non-confected way. Robust yet gentle and very polished. Like the nose it is a magnificent balance of American and sherry oak which never becomes over blown and allows the honey barley and grassy hints to come through. The layering of this malt is superb and I would guess that it is a vatting rather than a finish.
