Ichiro's Malt Seven of Diamonds 1991 19-year-old

Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
Ichiro's Malt Seven of Diamonds 1991 19YO Pedro Ximenez Sherry Cask Finished. 54.8 per cent alcohol (abv).
Nose: Dry Sherry, earthy, mushrooms, pine, leather, timber, blueberry. Water reveals a floral note.
Palate: Needs a little water to open up. Dry sherry, oranges, cloves, papaya and dry oak. Extra water reveals some cocoa, sugared fruit jubes and cola.
Finish: Medium on rhubarb, sugared fruit jubes, cocoa, a little dry oak then minty.
Lacks the depth of the best sherried whiskies.

Sounds like an intriguing medley of notes. Hard to go wrong with cloves and oak for me though.
