Nosing: Fruit Sherry Spices
Some sweet fruitiness, pear and light citrus. Sherry cask influence, but not overly in your face. Some light spiciness. Feels washed out, has this weird musty smell like plaster dust. It lacks the intensity I would normally expect from a sherry cask whisky.

Taste: Sherry Spices Orange
Medium sweet arrival, some spiciness a little fruitiness that leans towards orange. Well balanced sweetness throughout. Has a sort of almost metallic tang towards the finish

Finish: Malt
Short and more of a continuation of the palate flavours with more maltiness emerging.

Comment:
I got this as part of a tasting set, and in all honesty I'm glad I tried it that way. If I had to sum it up in one word it would be "meh". It seems somewhat subdued throughout and there's no real stand out character to it. It feels like it has been made to be as inoffensive as possible to the biggest audience. That isn't to say its terrible, it isn't, but for the asking price it really needs to be bringing more to the table than this.

Nosing: Sherry Spices
Fantastic nose straight away can get the sherry cask, back burn of that is a peppery spice, very pleasant on the nose to begin with especially when first opened, does lack intensity than that of 46% whisky carries but overall very nice smell.

Taste: Sherry Orange Pepper
First is the burn of the pepper you feel in the back of your tongue, then the glaze of the orange covers the roof and sides of the mouth then the haze of sherry coats the entire mouth giving you a satisfied feel.

Finish: Sherry Pepper Spices Sweet
Lovely overall finish to a dram of this, the sherry is the more overwhelming infusion in this mix but compliments the pepper really well, the spice is a nutmeg with a slight lean towards cinnamon, overall the taste lasts about 40-60 seconds and does leave you satisfied but the desire for more afterwards.

Comment:
I do enjoy this whisky, as a medium priced whisky it delivers in taste and color, its finish lacks the body that over whiskys in the 46% abv range do but overall is a well balanced malt delivering in notes that will satisfy a beginner to tasting such as myself.
