Interesting nose, very inviting…
relatively light and thin
easy drinking, maybe a little one-dimensional
maybe a little one-dimensional on the finish; smooth and flat
Reminded me of a rye bourbon on the nose. The single malt seemed to have more characteristics of a lowland than a Speyside. No memorable sherry notes in this one. I enjoyed it, but probably would not add it to my collection.

Heavy
Thick and spicy
Very nice
Maybe tries too hard but is very classic in its approach.

Butterscotch and light pears
Vulnerable elegance
Strong vanilla at the end. Add water gives smoke (off from vanilla !!) Weird.
Refilled sherry casks here. Phenomenal. Grandfatherly.
