General description

ex-bourbon + ex-sherry (probably 2nd fill)
exactly what you would expect but the 40% is a problem.

Nose

No alcohol burn, raisin, honey, vanilla, oak and toffee

Palate

Fruity. stop.
Too light in my opinion due to the low abv.
It's like drinking flavoured water.

Finish

Short finish, honey and cinnamon.
Then comes through the amaretto (italian candy-dessert) that I don't really like.

General description

tons of fruity sherry, with that tannic oak overtone that heavily sherry influenced scotches sometimes get. It's certainly not offensive, but not my favorite sherry bomb.

General description

Hohe Sherry Note, gewisse Süße und Würze. Nicht gerade rund und etwas wenig spektakulär. Aber für einen 10 jährigen geht das völlig in Ordnung. Für den Preis sicher machbar. Bevorzuge dann aber doch den 12 jährigen.

Not a big highland guy but some go above and beyond and in this case it doesn't. Not a bad dram but its kinda like macallan gold downgraded into a duller version. Sweet nose smooth palate with notes of honey and pencil shavings. Medium finish

General description

On the nose the sherry is there, but overruled by vanilla, caramel, apple and pear.
Altough this one is only 40%, the alcohol is tickling your nose like a 55% one.
The palate is soft, round and smooth with a little bite of warming spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.
The medium/long wooden finish is warm and fruity.
This one does everything you would expect from a Speyside.

76 points.
