On the nose the sherry smells really sweet, rich plums in syrup and stewed and sugared strawberry.
The palate is spicy but also dry with it, with some faint milk chocolate coming through.
Neat I love the finish, no burn, just glides down and i feel it in my chest, (this has not happened to me before, not like this?
I do not think water is needed but here goes.
I did not add much water and it has the same nice syrupy warmth on the finish, just ever so slightly less expressive.
Hard to fault whisky like this when the flavours and more to the point the finish are so good.
