The sherry influence on this rather full bodied, viscous dram is very noticeable to the point where it almost tastes like a very boozy sherry instead of a Scotch. Only a faint cry of whisky-ness rises to the surface, allowing some dark chocolate, spicy oak and heat. If you really like sherry in your whisky, this is for you. But you have to really, really like it. Like, a lot. Did I mention it mostly just tastes of sherry.
