Yep, that's the kinda nose I like. Exactly what I want to smell when looking at a darkly-sherried whisky. Huge sherry scents, most fruits ever dried in the history of drying fruits. Leather, bubblegum, and some milk chocolate.
What a palate. Just a classic, massive Speyside sherry bomb. And quite lively for its age (aided by the ABV I suppose). Who wouldn't love this? Gets varnishy in the finish, if you can imagine what varnish might taste like (but undoubtedly doesn't). Tannins are controlled.
A delicious if expected (or perhaps hoped for) senior sherry monster.
