Additionally, this year I made up a vatting of various heels that I was not pleased with and fortified the vatting with some Pedro Ximenez sherry.
In the past the resulting fruit cakes have been sensational and every friend Carollyne and I have come over in the follwing December to eat fruit cake and raid any open bottles in my collection.
It's a lot of fun and the cake is really good. I think any decent whisky and a decent fruit cake will work and a lot of my friends, who all hated fruit cake, are now making their own.

Good products sympatheticaly used always work together in my opinion.
