    The sherry finishing is a bit light, but it does impart some fruitiness, mainly citric, but some pear and a hint of blackberry as well.

    The fruitiness is overwhelmed by a prickly effervescence at cask strength, but water helps smooth the mouth feel, though one can wish for a bit more oiliness.

    At first it's a little hard to believe that the whisky spent more than 15 years aging in casks, but with water the somewhat more complex finish is convincing.
