Based on your description and cask number, you must be describing the new sherried 15, not the older bourbon cask version. If so, I agree that it is quite good whisky. I was disappointed they dropped the 15 YO bourbon cask, as it was also very good. But if this is the replacement, then bravo to Balvenie! It is not at all a "sherry bomb", rather delicate for 15 years in sherry cask. Definitely tastes a mature and well integrated whisky with a hint of old wood, all of which I find delightful. I will definitely buy more of this, assuming the quality extends to other casks.

@Taco thanks for your input I do really like this one and it does have lots of sherry in it, so yes this was the more recent one that you spoke of. Glad you enjoyed it. (:
