I like both about equally.
With 2 drops of water to 2cl, it becomes rounder for me without losing much of its aroma.
Just about okay for the money, but there are definitely more exciting things out there.
The nutty flavors are definitely there, but this one is less soft-sweet and spicier. You can also feel the 3-year age difference, but that's definitely still within limits and by no means sprightly. The sherry spice is more present than the sherry sweetness. I've got a lot of nuts here, mostly walnuts, then mushy fruit, but I can't pinpoint which - more dark, mushy fruit, maybe cherries. All not bad, but a bit trivial and boring.
The mouthfeel fits on the palate; It doesn't blow my mind, but I didn't expect that either. I like it better diluted down than a comparable strong cask with well over 50 percent. The fact that he is a bit thin is not due to the percentages, but to his age. Here a little more sweetness from old plums, wood and nuts again.
Short but round.
