Oh, I love how this bottle gets voted down... and I still like it.
Nose: I rarely have childhood memories I look back to smiling... but spending summers in Denmark in a beach house counts towards that.
This whisky SMELLS exactly like this... wooden houses, that spend too much time in way to high humidity.
Salty, wet, wood...
Taking a nose of this whisky always beams me back to those moments.
Mouth: well, who would have thought, it tastes the same. Alcohol is neatly "next" to that nose/aroma of wet wood.
Finish: very long, as I enjoyed the nose, I even enjoy the finish.
Conclusion: it is a very personal experience for me and I would not fear to buy a bottle of this insane stuff.
Does it have anything to offer "the real stuff" has to offer?
well.. errr no, I think not. It wet wood/mushy lingering overshadows everything else.
Is it a bad whisky? for me... no. For my brother (sharing the same childhood memories)... no.
Does everyone need a bottle/sample of this? maybe not :-)
I still think its funny, how the SV guys thought "this is a good idea to release upon the world". So here it is :-)
