Inviting nose with candied sweetness almost like a wheated bourbon. Cooked fruits on the palate but also a little burnt rubber vegetal. Gives way to a nice butterscotch candy taste. Finish is hot and short however, gives away the young age a bit.
This has an odd nose with Butterfinger and pralines & cream ice cream. The palate is full of sweet toffee, a more literal toffee flavor that is found in bourbon, which often has toffee-like notes. The toffee note comes on strong but then fades quickly and you're left with a very vague sherry note on the finish. Water tames the sweetness a bit but also brings out some sulfur on the palate.
This one was a mess. It was sweet but without depth, and it didn't retain any positive notes from the sherry aging.
