Member Ratings and Notes
N: Medicinal sherry with a nostril clearing effect like Vicks Vapo Rub, cinnamon.
P: Big dry sherry, reminiscent of the Glen Elgin 16 from The Bottlers, but with the volume turned down.
F: Tobacco and hot cinnamon candy. 
Well, my initial impression was just "Cask-strength sherried whisky, and good!"  'Cause that's what it is.  Lengthy finish.  BE mentioned Red Hots (the candy) and he's right.  Adding a good amount of water makes this a really rich and drinkable sherried treat, bringing out toffee and caramel and other spices.  Just add water and enjoy!  B+/A- 
N:  Stout.  Not for the faint of nose.
P:  Cinnamon on fire.
F:  Lingering and spicy. 

Very sweet, sharp, cinammon nose. A taste of hot/spicy cinammon - someone made the "red hots" candy comparison and that's very accurate. Long, spicy finish. This was really interesting - not something I'd drink all the time, but I would certainly enjoy having it in the bar, and it is so distinctive that it is worth seeking out to try.

Nose:  Sweet sherry/wine notes, warm and spicy.
Palate:  Initially very sweet dessert wine flavors, followed by oak and vanilla extract.  Nice, chewy mouthfeel that stays with you into a sherried finish.
A well balanced sherry malt.  Good stuff.  B+/A- 
N: Deep sherry plums an bit of tar    
P: Balanced sherry notes with lots of raisins    
F: Salt and black pepper
