  1. FernetBranco scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Issue price 2019: GBP 60.00


    Maybe the craziest thing I've ever had under my nose. The official notes of the SMWS are doing quite well - I would like to add "Käsefüß" and "Babykotze".

      Doesn't smell really nice ... but somehow interesting too!

    Interesting whisky!
    Nose: parmesan cheese, goat barn, old lambic
    Taste: many different 'layers' - both sweet and salty, slightly smoked mackerel
    Quite surprisingly, don't let the nose scare you!

    Disgusting Scotia. I can enjoy a dirty whisky every now and then, but this is really not good.

  7. NutsInAKilt scored this whisky 70 points Newbie

    Too funky for me. Heavy cheese funk upfront with cough syrup and earth on the back. Smoke struggles to come through to lessen the funk. Can see how others would like it but not for me

    SMWS Tasting Notes: Strap yourself in! Blue cheese yoghurt comes first, then long-aged lambic ales, fermenting lemons, goat cheese smoothies, pickled onion monster munch and a couple of muddy sheep doused in malt vinegar. Assorted "farmyard aromas"! Cask matured olive oil, smoked cheese, mutton, sautéed liver and onions. Weird as hell but strangely brilliant. Water offers no quarters. Unintentionally clotted cream, 'toss a coin' slightly out of date milk, roadkill stroganoff, sour bubblegum, 'highland fridge smell', dog jackets, forgotten turnip, swimming pool plasters, mercurochrome and rotten tree stumps doused with antiseptic soup. The mouth is thrillingly salty, feta cheese curds, peated lemon juice, ash, smoked mint, herb-infused bacon, dead mice in pitta bread, white pepper on jellied eels. Then a coal scuttle full of cow stable straw. Water offers cumin schnapps, vapour rub eau de vie, Marmite ale, sardine oil and a liquified fisherman's welly. But don't let us put you off!
