Nosing: Oak Sweet Vanilla Orange maple

Taste: Oak Malt Sweet Ginger

Finish: medium long Oak Apple

Comment: a surprisingly good dram. excellent quality/price ratio! I'm usually more a sherry guy but this was sweet all over. Could see this becoming a daily drinker, especially for the price!

Nosing: Banana Spices Vanilla Oak

Taste: Oak Walnut Vanilla and something a bit soapy.

Finish: Bitter Oak , lots of it, lasts a good while. can detect a hint of Clove

Comment:
I've had this bottle open for over a year, it seems to have changed a bit over time, used to smell more oaky, now it's more of a savory sweet banana vanilla thing. The taste is very very oaky, they ain't lyin'. Quite bitter. Overall good, and serves as an interesting and different alternative to the 15 YO. I'd enjoy more complexity however, the oak really masks any other stuff that could've been there.
