Nose: Bursting with sherry. Raisins, candied orange and chocolate. Plenty of thick treacle and, you know something, even a hint of smoke.

Palate: Wow! What a mouthful. Warm, oily and chewy. Sherry, oranges again, cherries and Christmas cake flavours all intermingle for attention with a lovely liqourice background.. Perhaps a hint of almonds.

Finish: Medium length with sweet Sherry, spices and raisins.

Balance: Consistently sweet, but not too much. There's complexity on the nose and palate that doesn't quite follow through to a, nevertheless, very pleasant finish.

This is a pleasing whisky. It's a good example of how to use Sherry casks (in this case PX) to good effect, something that the likes of Glenfarclas could well pay attention to. It's age, quality, complexity and limited number of bottles (just 660 filled) explain the steep price of £100 a go. Worth it if you can afford it.

Interesting to read your experience with one of the PX single casks - I have the '93 (21yo, cask 475) which is ex-Oloroso. I tried a PX one as well, but prefer GlenDronach's Oloroso versions - more complex and meaty, with overtones of chocolate and a long finish (for a Sherried Scotch)
