  1. ibenja scored this whisky 3 points Member Junior

     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.

  2. Foamy scored this whisky 44 points Member Senior

    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'

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    Scores for initiative but not for the whisky lover.
    • Nose
      Liquorice, medicinal. Fruity,flowery,whisky aromas very evident.
    • Taste
      Light, dryish. Liquorice. Hint of cough sweets. Fruit.
    • Finish
      Whisky flavors gently emerge. Liquorice root. Dryish. Hint of warmth.

  5. ctu scored this whisky 49 points Connoisseur

    Wow, that's really horrible. The nose is still alright, but the others ...
    • Nose
      Plum, raisin and caramel. Bitter liquors, herbals and rubber.
    • Taste
      Bitter, lot of oak, salt, celery, horseradish, soy sauce, coffee and soup cube.
    • Finish
      Short, dry, bitter, acidic.

  7. St. Pauli scored this whisky 63 points Connoisseur

    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      Sweet, dried fruits, plums, dates, raisins, but punchy and sour like balsamic acid (not a good one). It's extremely woody, like chewing oak.
    • Finish
      Burnt caramel, balsamic acid with added sugar, meat gravy, oak staves. It's all very drying.

  9. WhiskyKravitz scored this whisky 45 points Expert Senior

    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)

    http://thekrav.blogspot.com/2014/12/hello-loch-dhu-and-cu-dhub-goodbye-2014.html
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      It's still coffee-ish, but with ammonia. Acrid boiled collard greens.
