The nose is so intensively marked by sherry that the question could be: is this still whisky...? Apart from that, there are many very pleasant fruity smells and a touch of bitterness.
The very first mouth is rather dry and develops quickly on acid touches with still this woody bitterness on the background. The general impression is that it feels like a whisky soaking for a while in a (not empty) sherry cask for a very long time. This gives it a nice complexity along with clear woody notes. For those who do not consider woody notes as a hinder, this is a very good whisky.
The finish is extremely long and remains marked by sherry. Bitterness disappears at this stage and the whole is very pleasant.

Rich sherry flavours overrun the nose at the first contact. Hints of plum brandy and some fruity notes appear behind this really dominating sherry, but after a while, other fragrances like nutty notes come trough the sherry veil, giving this whisky a nice complexity.
In the palate, a mix of woody bitterness and acid notes develop rather quickly but sherry dominance is back after a few minutes.
Finish is also very marked by sherry. This bottle is essential for sherry monster lovers.
