    herb, malt, ether, sulfur and herbal tea!

  2. grinface scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    It is young. Or alcoholic. Or both. Water doesn't help much here, even if I would have guessed that, because of the high strength. There is a soapy note that is a little off. There's a lot better whisky out there.

  3. schengel10 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    interesting, intense but quite one-dimensional - it definitely needs water - and even then the alcoholic note still comes to the fore!
