Fruity lemonade and sherry on the nose, all very sweet and inviting. This immediately defines this whisky as a sort of dessert. The palette is unexpectedly punchy for 12 years, I've had 8 year malts at higher abv that were smoother than this. That's not necessarily a bad thing for a Speyside whisky, as many of them tend to be too bland and boring. This one actually has some depth and character to it. The fruit and sherry notes are well blended here. A good balance of sweetness and spice. The sherry casks really help save this whisky from mediocrity. Finish is unexpectedly short for its age. Overall a decent sipping malt that lives up to its reputation.
