General description

Fruit and sherry, what's not to like. Maybe a little longer finish and a bit more ooomp! Guess that's why there's the cask strength a'bunadh.

Finish strength: Medium
Color: Auburn, Polished Mahogany

General description

Well rounded, sherry sweetness and oak spices without either overpowering.

Nose

Buttery spices & raisins.

Palate

Brown sugary sweetness with raisins on the tip of the tongue. Rolls back to a spiced oak warmth.

Finish

Spices linger with a light char.

While visiting a friend in Vegas I had a chance to sample a few drams. It didnt stand out in any particular way, but was very good, felt stable, pleasant and a bit sweet. A few drops of spring water made it a bit more interesting.
