    No, this is not good. Too much port, not enough whisky. Might as well
    simply pour myself a pure port and be done with it.
    • Nose
      Well, the nose is special to say the least. The port cask gives this a
      sour, almost umami streak. I get broth and gravy on the nose, something that
      reminds me of julienne soup, with some dark fruit underneath. But the fruit
      struggles and fails to get through that meaty layer. Like I said: special. That
      is not to say that I like it. Au contraire. Water cannot save this one,
      although the meaty side makes place for some red fruit.
    • Taste
      The attack is creamy and unexpectedly sweet. So the wine has the upper
      hand here. Sweet on red berries, gooseberries and some sultanas. Slightly
      sourish, almost winey. This is too much. I can hardly recognize whisky in this.
      Surely that is not the way it is meant to be. Water redeems the palate
      somewhat, but not enough. It remains too sour and too sharp.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, but sourishly sweet, with or without water.
