 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'

Color
Brown sherry
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. 

Comments

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.

Cheers! Paul

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.

Comments

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)

Cold coffee and raspberries. The nose is still more or less ok.

Taste

Cold coffee, bitter. It really stops there for me. Really awful.

Finish

You're kidding, right?

Comments

Probably the worst whisky ever!
