Yum! The bottle mentions raisins, and wow, there are definitely raisins in the nose. They continue into the palate -- fruity and plummy. Some sherry flavors to be sure, but not massively so. This is a delightful whisky, and greater complexity would raise the grade into the A's. Easy-drinking yet packed with sweet, rich, raisin-y flavors. A tinge of smoke too. Tasty.
