Do you get any flavors from the sherry? as I don't see any in your notes.
From what I can recall of this Balvenie are not really the sherry notes but more like the honey flavours and most of all that thick, creamy, silky butter scotch taste.
BTW, this thread was a really good idea if you ask me. It's in many ways an eye opener for me to read what people think of these 'basic' whiskies.
