- The worst whisky I have ever tasted. Is it whisky or diluted asphalt matured in truck tyres casks? I trew it in da loo after the first (and only!) tentative to taste it. Nearly perfect masochist choice, so disgusting that it almost worth a try.
- Tasted in the evening.
Burnt coffee, meat broth not tasty (umami, but not umami, what), fat, dull, soy sauce. Final ... tenacious (like a task).
It's not ... very good. It's ... not really whisky.
But I laughed so much, to see the head of my friends seeing my head to taste it, and I was so happy to be able to taste this "legendary" drink, that it will remain a good memory anyway.
Enthusiasm 3/5 (for the fun)
Whisky n ° 2044
- I tried this one on 2 occasions, with months between.
Just to be sure I didn't make a mistake the first time, because I couldn't believe my own tastin notes ... Well ... the second time confirmed the first notes.
ink, oyster sauce (but worse).
I don’t like it because I think there’s nothing to like in this over caramelized salty soapy dirty … buurrrppss
foaming vomit ... that's what this shit is.
The bottlers should be called : 'The Tasteless Bastards'
- A bottle famous for its funky and unpleasant taste...I will try my best to stay objective with this review.
On the nose, Chinese medicine, herbal tea, watered down coffee, and gamey. Well the nose does match up with the colour of the liquid...
On the palate, dry sherry?! At this point I am quite confused...do I taste plant-based medicine with dry sherry?! There are also hints of forced sweetness...horribly made hard candies? Soy sauce is also present. With time, sour plums and old raisins come out...this is making my stomach feel unwell...oh no...
The finish is unfortunately medium with cheap coffee and boiled vegetables.
Does this whisky deserve to be known as the 'worst whisky of all time'? I have no idea as I have not had my fair share of bad whisky experiences. However, is this whisky drinkable? Barely.
- The nose is ok. But in the mouth it's really unpleasant.
Note that the caramel tint completely the glass and must be washed a good dozen times after drinking this whisky. Plan a good decision.
Floral nose. Licorice. Pot pourri
It is quite correct.
In the mouth, this is where the dram begins ... it's bland. Water. Perfume, soap, tire. Only pleasure.
Final on the perfume and .... we do not care we want to spit.
- Wow, that's really horrible. The nose is still alright, but the others ...
Plum, raisin and caramel. Bitter liquors, herbals and rubber.
Bitter, lot of oak, salt, celery, horseradish, soy sauce, coffee and soup cube.
Short, dry, bitter, acidic.
- It gets better (or less evil) when letting it rest in your glass for more than an hour. Quite an experience to taste this whisky.
It coats to the glass like syrup and sticks for ages. Directly after pouring: plasticine, rubber, burnt tyre, extreme harsh balsamic vinegar, and bitter herbs. Some dried fruit can be detected, but from a far, far distance. Maple syrup, marmite.
Time heals: it gets better after one hour or so, with more influence of maturation in sherry casks (PX?). Yet, it still smells chemical and burnt.
Sweet, dried fruits, plums, dates, raisins, but punchy and sour like balsamic acid (not a good one). It's extremely woody, like chewing oak.
Burnt caramel, balsamic acid with added sugar, meat gravy, oak staves. It's all very drying.
- While this is indeed bad bad bad, it's not a Bottom 5 whisky for me. But it's still bad bad bad, Plan 9 From Outer Space bad. (Rating: 45)
Burnt prunes. Burnt raisins. But mostly, burnt caramel. Then Worcestershire sauce intermingling with Kikkoman's regular soy sauce. Fresh celery, carpet, shredded wheat nuggets, and old library books. It's somewhat fungal, like foot fungus.
Burnt coffee, and lots of it. Cardboard, or like licking a whisky label. Horseradish and dirt. It's so chemically, like someone tried to make a diet salty coffee soda syrup then gave up, added new make, and called it whisky. Bitterness. Sadness.
It's still coffee-ish, but with ammonia. Acrid boiled collard greens.
Nose is quite ok though
Very very weird taste, fades away real quickly and it sits on the back of the tonque with a real strange layer of taste, like soap
Bitterness with soap and something rotten punches you in the face
- a classic famous for its notes and texture:
on the nose, nice, very marked by caramel, oily nuts and ashes, after it is singular: caramel cooked, licorice, wood chips, a little toasted or grilled and it remains under the tongue, the Final is simple but you must actually wash the glass with plenty of water.
