Its seems to be 40% , aged in 3 casks – Sherry , American Oak and traditional Oak casks. It was the sherry cask that got me.
Anybody had it ?

You bought it. Might as well get into it and let us know
Don't listen to him. You should just send that bottle to me for proper disposal, it sounds like something that tastes like ass...

Nose: soft, sweet, fruity, overripe pear, Cinnamon ? ?
Flavor: sweet, very delicate with no sharp edges. Subdued spice. Honey. A hint of the oak barrel. Earthy, a step short of peaty
Finish: Short finish except for fruit which fades to earth and stays around. Realy nice.
While tasting I kept thinking “top notch blend” . Anyone will enjoy this. Very easy to drink.
Tonight I poured a very small shot and tasted it neat. The overripe fruit really stood out. Like fruit on the ground under a tree, apple maybe. A little more spice and subtle oak. Overall quite sweet and balanced, I really liked it, but it may not have enough kick for some folks. Like it more than Macallan 12 or Glenfiddich 18. So I think it was a good buy for the 44 or 46 dollars I paid for it.

Did you buy this bottle at the SEATAC Airport? I might have to get a bottle next time I'm up there...
