Some originally thought this was a sherried Springbank but it looks like it is actually Glen Ord.

Nose
The first thing to notice is that we have a crisp, clean type of sherry on this one, a very jammy whisky.
Blackcurrant, raspberry, coffee & walnut cake, treacle sponge by the bucket load mixed with whisky fudge.
After a few minutes coffee beans and plain chocolate with date slices.
Basically it is a rich cake mix with dark fruit and about as nice a nose on a sherried whisky as you can get.
Can the palate live up that sublime nose?

Taste
Syrupy, everything on the nose is more or less here and there is a very slight possibly soapy taste that dram-drinker mentions that on reflection I believe is coming from the rich sherry cask itself infused with oak.
Nothing out of place, excellent balance, a basket of dark fruits with rich fruit cake and treacle tart with a few red wine notes and hints of bubble gum

Finish
Good medium length, getting dry but remains fruity and lip smacking until the end.
I also detected a faint hint of peat in the background on the finish

This has got to be in the top 3 sherried whisky I have tried so I am going to try some old Macallan next I have a 1950 and 1972 18 year that should be good competition for this (possibly)
