    Mostly on tobacco smoke, dry oak, wax, and this restrained but obvious sherry note. On the tongue, the same smoke, some milk chocolate, some kind of herbal liqueur, and general sweetness. It's quite enjoyable neat, but I feel adding any water puts it out of joint: the tannins start to push up past the smoke, and the whole becomes too dry for me. I doubt a sherry finish could be the source of all this oak, so my guess is the finish exists rather to try and hide these dry notes. Adding enough water also brings up an unfortunate clear ethanol note. Nosed neat I'd give it 89 easy, but the palate and how it behaves with water drag the whole down.

    To clarify, I started adding water because the whisky wasn't entirely satisfying neat, especially on the finish, but unfortunately it turned out that neat is as good as it gets.
