Old Perth, Blended Malt – Sherry Casks, 43%

Review #771
A blended malt from Morrison and MacKay’s Old Perth range. Quite the Sherry influence on the nose. But in a light and sweet way. Sweet raisins, fresh plums and some vanilla.

Some white fruits and hay joins the show in the taste. Some bitter oak and hints of citrus as well. The finish is medium long with a sweet touch of the dried fruits and berries. Gives a little vanilla creamy feeling as well.

Not quite what I expected from such a cheap whisky - with the smell as the absolute highlight. But also a fine finish, which was long and sweet. A little longer maturation in the Sherry casks to boost the flavours would have done wonders. I will give this 84/100 (22/20/21/21).
