This is the new Crested that has taken over for the Crested Ten. The look has also been updated. Definitely sherry influenced in the smell, but not in the way that it is overpowering. Just a wee nice touch. Typical grain sweetness and fruits, but also a bit of alcohol off notes.
Again light fruity, grainy and classical Irish in the taste. Short finish, but what stays behind is quite nice. Very much like the sweetness you get from new make spirit and young grain whisky. But all in all it is a bit watery at 40 % and seems quite young.
