The sherry comes out strong and with it the typical aroma of dried fruits. A lot of sweetness, I'm thinking of apples and prunes that have been lying on the ground for awhile. Mellow oak lingers in the background. (With water: Hints of freshly cut oranges.)

Taste

Spicy at first, you can tell this was bottled at cask strength. Not too strong though as it's oily and velvety in the mouth. Many fruity notes again, notably sweet strawberries. It has something creamy... strawberry and vanilla milkshake? (Having rested in the glass a little longer, with water: Definitely oranges now. Strikes a nice balance with the soft taste of oak.)

Finish

Best described as long-lasting sweetness. More oak later as the mouth gets dry.

Comments

Fine example of a sherried cask strength whisky. It might seem heavy on the sweet side at first, but it certainly gains from letting it rest in the glass for some minutes. The careful addition of water tamed the prominent sweetness and brought pleasant citrus notes to light.
