    Not recognizible as a whisky. Pretty much what Bazi said. Not drinkable.

    A young 5 year old organic whisky from the Netherlands? When I discovered the bottle in the supermarket, I was immediately curious. Since the price for an organic whisky was very moderate, I took the bottle with me. On Christmas Day I opened the whisky to smell it. The
    Nose was already quite a nightmare. the smell of the cheapest, poorly distilled industrial alcohol rises in my nose. I have been warned, but I'll try a sip and immediately regret it. Absolutely inedible. Tastes the way disinfectant smells. Pretty much everything that could go wrong went wrong here. It is impossible to enjoy this product. I'm at a loss as to what to do with the demolition bottle. This "whisky" is not good enough even for mixing. Category: Bad buy of the year.
