A very sweet and rich whisky, with deep flavors of dried fruits and berries.  Spice that was present mildly in the background hits harder after a couple moments in the long finish.  This is kinda one dimensional in a sweet, grapey, heavily-sherried way (yeah I know it's not sherried, but the end result is rather close).  It certainly tasty, and reminds me of Macallan 18 with some Mortlach thrown in.
