Michael Jackson's Malt Whisky Companion: "Vatting of first-fill sherry and unspecified refill casks. Colour: Bronze. Nose: Earthy, fruity. Pears. Apples. Tarte tatin. Body: Medium, firm. Palate: Melty pastry. Caramel sauce. Custard (in this instance, let's call it crème anglaise). Leaves of garden mint. Finish: More of the mint. Now it has become spearmint."
