Nosing: Sherry Pineapple Vanilla Caramel Raisin

Taste: Sherry Sweet Coconut Ham

Finish: Nuts

Comment: Almost a waxy note in the nose. Both cask types clearly present. Smoky note from the casks in the taste, very cool. Mouth covering. Slight bitterness appears in the finish reminiscent of walnuts. Almond oil? A great bottle, but I'm happy I didn't pay full price. Very smooth, and easy to drink, but I was expecting more out of the finish.

There's both a 40% and a 43% bottle on the market, mind you. If yours says 43% ABV you can find it on here as well.
