    First impression is: sherrybomb. It's dark and was matured in a 1st fill oloroso hogshead. First impressions are sometimes a bit misleading though.
    On the nose it's very much a butter and caramel dram. With time fruitier notes reveal themselves. Butter and caramel stay present though. An obvious sherry matured dram, but not a standard one. Very pleasant.
