This is from a sample sent to me by @wierdo (again, many thanks, my friend!).
Nose - Rich and enticing. Leather, a touch of smoke, coffee, ginger and sherry. Complex. Prickly yet soft
Taste - Soft. Sweet (Medjool dates) to sour, fruity (the red kind – raspberry?), cigar smoke with a thick resinous mouthfeel.
Finish - Med - long. Pineapple and ginger with some softly smoked oak (if you get my meaning?)
Fruitier and pricklier on the nose with water, more leather and fruit (raisins) on the taste, more tannins and oak on the finish. Nose improves but rest I prefer neat, just.
I like this. This is what I find I really like about a sherried whisky – more of a rounded character and less overt sweet syrupy notes. The smoke and leather really brings the fruit, well the whole experience really, into balance. Complex, very easy to get on with and very well done.
