My score was 1 star for the 25...is the 17 any better? Nose - light berry, vanilla, oak. There's a bit of a nutty character here. Taste - vanilla, cream, oak, warming alcohol (43% so that's nice), and a touch of fruit. I can see this as lightly butter scotchy, where those nutty notes in the nose are coming from perhaps. So I'm a bit torn. I came into this brand expecting sherry whisky. This isn't that. It's much more a bourbon barrel, a very well worn bourbon barrel. There might be some sherry casks in here but if the are, they're USED. i like the fruity and perhaps white chocolate notes. It's nice and yeah I like the 17 more than the 25 I think. The 17 is more bourbon cask notes while the 25 is more sherry with berry and fruit notes coming out a bit more. The 17 is more nutty and butter scotch. The 17 is more unique an experience and for me that's a win. It's just more interesting. The 25 is just a bad example of sherry whisky. So scoring this a 1.75. It's not great. It's 100+ bucks. I don't recommend it.
