A nice integration of the sherry cask finish, well balanced but still quite light-bodied this has a gentle diversity and is incredibly smooth – a great sipping whisky! 84/100.
An unusual mixture of whisky and cider flavours that I quite enjoyed, reminiscent of Calvados in some ways and some of the more rustic Normandy ciders we have sampled. 85/100.
Unfortunately a little weird and raw chemicals (esters/acetone) on the nose but once you get past this the palate and finish really are quite solid and good for a blend. There is a depth of flavour which strongly hints at quite a rich bourbon-cask maturation which does this blend a lot of favours.
