Nose is sherry-like, malty, with toffee, but there's an oily petroleum-like character that I don't love.  Palate delivers a sweet and almost-full-bodied mouthful of vanilla, caramels, moderate spices, dried fruits and oranges.  Finish continues the theme, but seems a bit hot given the sum of the parts here.  It's decent whisky, but it would be so much better without that petroleum overtone that hangs over the whole experience.
