This is an amazing whisky, aged for more than 50 years in a sherry butt. The nose is full of creame sherry, honey, straw, and just a hint of wood smoke. The taste is complex and nectar-like, thick, creamy, and rich with notes of dried fruits, soft spices, and just a trace of oak and honey. The finish is complex with a honey texture and just a trace of smoke. Letting it sit in the glass for a while will build up oak notes on the nose, along with a hint of rich topsoil.
