Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Toasty and nutty, with tempting aromas of walnuts and hazelnuts, beefed up with rich mocha, bitter orange marmalade and cinnamon. A touch of raisiny sweetness from the PX barrel but not heavy or overdone.
Palate: Rich, smooth texture. Lovely decadent dark chocolate cake, coffee, barrel char and sponge-cake batter, but crucially, not sweet or cloying. The palate is perked up by clove, nutmeg and fresh orange peel.
Finish: Rich but not sweet, with the mocha notes adding a rich bitterness.
Comment: A delightfully rich after-dinner dram that would go really well with a chocolate dessert, or alongside a coffee.

Quite wonderful. (Some of my reviews have been banned, - but I guess not this one) It's quite gorgeous, and I'm not usually a fan of sherried whiskies. You have to buy this!
