Gonzales Byass Oloroso sherry finish – 46.3%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Raisins, caramel, wood polish, hints of rubber and tobaco.
Palate: Raisins, dates, fudge, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Rather short, sweet and spicy.
Overall: For a sherry finish this malt is a bit feeble. The overall character is pretty nice but it could benefit from a little more oomph.
Rating: 74/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
