Overall kind of disappointed, perhaps the refill sherry cask isn’t doing the justice, was hoping for a slightly bumped up Macallan 12 with extra proof and un-chill-filtered. The nose is a bit pungent for 46%, not too bad got some basic sherry notes. The palate is rather simple, more malty and oaky than sherry.
