Nosing: Sherry, complex fruitiness with a tiny hint of citrus, tiny bit of oak, and very slight smoke. The nose is amazingly complex and balanced. Sherry/sweet fruit up front seem to dominate, but the blenders have done a fantastic job balancing so many differant aspects.
Sherry Fruit Sweet Oak Bonfire Smoke
Taste: Sweet, sherry, mixed fruits and vanilla hints of carmel or other sweets that are lost in the mix to me. Still very well balanced, and a nice, albeit weak dram. Sweet Sherry Fruit Vanilla Caramel

Finish: Finish is decent, no big revelations just more of the impeccable balance shown through the dram.

Comment: I tried this whisky long before I was "into" scotch. (recovering bourbon freak) I liked that it was approachable, complex, and had no hard edges. After dipping my toes into single malts (especially Islay... Peat FTW!) I can still appreciate this malt, but have learned that my elders have told me true, and that many single malts can be better for less money. What I have not found is any blend that can compare to this...... the artisanal hands of the blenders leave me in awe, while the cheapness of Diageo bottling this at 40% confound me. At half the price, this would be five stars for me all day long.
