Nose: The Sherry oak takes hold of the nose with thick slices of warm Christmas cake and juicy raisins. Beneath you'll find apple peel and honey'd malt.
Palate: Sherry spices still at the fore, though the vanilla sweetness from the bourbon barrel shines through, as does some warm, oak-y touches.
Finish: Full and long.
Overall: Certainly a Summer dram, bright and pleasing.
