Not incredibly sherried but still flavorful.  Grape/watermelon jolly rancher.  Vaporous.  One of the better of the series for sure.

n:  Dark fruits.  Dried cranberries and raisins.

 

p:  Runs hot.  May need water.   Intensely flavored.  Almost cloying.  Not quite as sweet the nose hints at.  Raisins and decaying rainforest.

 

Perhaps a whisky aged a few years too much.
