The nose is malty without much trace of sherry at all. Malt also dominates the palate, which starts with very nice sweet malty notes and then moves into fruit, floral notes, some bubble gum and a touch of white wine.

 

This tastes much more like a bourbon cask offering. If it didn't list it on the label, I would never have guessed that it was sherry cask matured. I would assume that this was a cask that had already had a number of fills such that the sherry had all been sucked out of it. Regardless, this is a very nice whiskey; just don't approach it thinking you're getting a sherried malt.
