    NoseSherry monster indeed! Its influence is very prevalent and besides a hint of malted barley, it’s sherry all day.
    PalateThe first sip is really smooth and as an experienced taster once told
    me, it takes many sips to adequately judge a whisky so let’s continue
    on. Big syrupy sherry flavors that remind me of cola without the
    carbonation. I may be picking up on hints of canned cherries but that
    could be a reach. Not much complexity but still tasty.
    With WaterThe nose is more prevalent and has a bigger punch. However, the
    palate gains a bit of spiciness and finish is more subdued. Definitely
    better without water.
    FinishVery pleasant and consistent with the nose and palate. Again, syrupy
    cola that stays on the top of the tongue. I like how it doesn’t get
    bitter at the end like some whiskies do.
    What I thinkToo bad there is not much complexity here. If there were, this whisky
    would intrigue me a bit more. Having said that, the price is great for
    what you get. Worth every penny.
