Outstanding. This is a sweet, beautifully balanced, festive, after dinner delight.

Nose: oranges, sherry, nutty malt, a hint of tar, candied fruit.

Palate: less honeyed than I expected, rich texture, spiced fruit, sherry, oranges, those hazelnut notes. Even neat you can hold this in the mouth for a good long while, a little burn but it warms you through. Stands up to a drop of water but I prefer it straight up and on the warm side of room temperature.

Finish: long, complex, satisfying.

This is a whisky you can sit and savour and be overpowered by. No need to think, just feel what's going on in your mouth.

I've been eyeing this for some time. I know it's a big sherry bomb but is it obvious sherry (real winey) or more the fruits of the sherry?

It is the fruits of the sherry. The winey sherry bombs are the Aberlour 15yr Sherry Wood Finish and the Arran Sherry Single Cask. I still like those, but I could understand why others don't.
