Nose of toffee, figs, and sherry.  Palate is ooh, good.  Caramel and toffee tastyness without being heavy.  Moderately sweet, sherried, with a typical whisky spice profile, and full -- yet it doesn't make me full-feeling (in a good way).  The sherried flavor is somewhat familiar, but in a very tasty and medium-rich way.  If the finish didn't grow as dry as it does -- becoming medium-bitter -- this would be a much better single malt.  I think this suffers from too much wood.  Still good though.
