- 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.
- 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'
- Scores for initiative but not for the whisky lover.
Liquorice, medicinal. Fruity,flowery,whisky aromas very evident.
Light, dryish. Liquorice. Hint of cough sweets. Fruit.
Whisky flavors gently emerge. Liquorice root. Dryish. Hint of warmth.
- 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.
- Tasting Notes:
- 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.
