    You either like it or not. It is actually too strong about Sherry only for my taste. It actually reminds me on the new edition of the Bunnahabhain XXV with 46.3% abv.
    • Nose
      Very strong sherry cask, leathery, nutty
    • Taste
      Oily, smooth and again extremely sherry - I mean not just like a strong sherry cask but rather pure Sherry mixed into it. There is some sweetness but not much else.
    • Finish
      Medium long and pretty punchy and rather bitter

    Pretty dry oak, leather shoes, short finish. All in all I have expected a bit more complexity.
