No regrets, but giving it a score of 39 doesn't mean I found it that much better or acceptable than him. On my scale 16 points would mean I was writing this from an ICU bed.
It's definitely not an inviting nose.
Considering I'm going to drink this, I would say borderline offending.
Chemical and plastic. Almost as if it have been stored in one of those blue 200 liter polyethylene barrels that previously have held brake fluid.
Something gone wrong in the charring as well. Nothing left of the oak, just the foul smell of arson.
€43,90 for a bottle? It smells €4,39.
Quite oily mouth feel.
Again chemical, industrial. Sweet unidentifiable queasy floral note.
Rather worrying that it doesn't burn until it has settled in the stomach.
Artificial floral sweetness battling with an unpleasant bitter dryness.
Most men, and probably some bearded ladies have accidentally tasted after shave when splashing it on. This is it, the Old Spice of whiskies.
