Mars Amber blend. 40 per cent alcohol. Nose: Sherry, honey, malt, dates, raisins. No grainy notes that I can pick up. Palate: Light bodied. Sherry, some nuttiness, toffee, dates, and a little nougat. Finish: Short on dry sherry, toffee and nuts. General comment: A simple, untaxing whisky that works best mixed or on the rocks, as the makers intended.
