"The wine influence seems to overwhelm the whiskey on the nose with peach, raspberries, and nuts. You will definitely see the wine as the whiskey has quite a dark pink hue to it. But on the palate, the whiskey becomes quite dry, tangy, and has a smoky Spanish almond thing going on. The fruit fades in and out of focus; just when you think you've found it, it vanishes once again."
