"The nose is a bit muted at first, but you do pick up the floral and mossy notes. The sherry notes are present as well, but really come through on the palate and on second nosing. There is a smoky and spiced quality to the whisky, but the lingering dried fruits help to balance things out at the end. Bonus points for good value to cost ratio. "
