Something septic, like paint mixed with decaying leaves, varnish and pool chlorine. A soft hint of vaguely earthy peat can be found in the back and there's this underlying tone of cloying caramel sweetness. There's also this smell of a room belonging to a child that moved out when they became an independent adult that hasn't been touched since. I compare it to stale rugs, dusty wood and old clothes. Honestly there's quite a bit going on here... Just not in a good way.
Extremely watery arrival. Stale pond water, cardboard, orange pith, old used coffee grounds, wood glue, oak, motor oil, fries fried in old overused frying oil. I guess there's a pear note hidden away in there that's somewhat okay?
Short. Charcoal, sappy wood, bitter, mint, lime zest.
Just don't buy this allright. Pinky promise? Unless you're a masochist of course. Then by all means go ahead. In all seriousness though. This is probably one of the worst malts available in the category around €30. With the competition being the likes of Highland Park 12, Caol Ila 12, Talisker 10, Clynelish 14, Glenfiddich 12 etc. There's just no need at all for people to buy this. I've made mistake of not ordering it at a bar before getting a bottle and tbh i do regret it.
