Wow, wonderfully aged sherried Speyside dram, rich in lots of lovely spices and mixed with old oak wood qualities.
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.
A decent young blend with heavy grain whisky influence, drinkable on its own but very usable for cocktails and short drinks / with mixers. I can see how this picked up the few awards it has gained.
