Comment:
Nosing:
Polite, almost apologetic at first, with a floral, citrus sweet nose that gains presence, commanding a chorus of vanilla notes over freshly harvested grain. Raisin, sultana and cinnamon look on as toffee apples and candy floss step into the limelight.
Taste:
Fresh green apples and lemons mingle with cinnamon. Ginger notes hover as fruit takes over, with subtle oak lingering in the wings.
Finish:
Light to medium with soft fruits and cereal, slightly dry.

Nosing: Caramel Caramel Lemon Vanilla Sherry Sweet Raisin
Initially a sweet hit of butter toffee and vanilla. Lots of sherry and raisin. Some mixed citrus peel in the background.

Taste: Lemon Malt Oak
Initial sweet citrus fruit arrival. Malty cereal, lots and lots of oak, almost too much.

Finish: Malt Oak
Medium length. Finishes dry and oaky with slight bitter aftertaste.

Comment:
I think this one is one of those ones that just came out of the barrel too early. The nose is aromatic and lively, with lots of active sherry cask influence. On the palate it just feels a little disjointed. The cask influence is overbearing, and as it transitions towards the finish it feels like you're gnawing on a plank of wood. At the price, for me its definitely one to pass on.
