    This is unlike anything I have ever tasted/smelled before, there is surely a lot to discuss about this one. The color is very dark but it definitely is not your sweet sherry bomb. It has a lingering note that is not to my liking like olive oil, soy sauce, and rotten driftwood that is too dominant. Would I buy this again no. Am I happy I bought this? If it would have been 60 bucks yes. But for 99€ NO. I would not rate it bad as I'm sure this is liked by many people, and it is smooth so maybe it's just not to my liking.

      A lot of malt and barley, vanilla sweetness, honey, toffee, light chocolate, olive oil and green olives, marzipan, hazelnuts some spices, could be oregano and pepper. But something is lingering in the back that I’m not a big fan of. Don’t know what it is though but it could be rotten cheese?

      It is smooth and very oily and spreads around the mouth nicely. Starts again very sweet with bourbon vanilla and toffee also some nice sherry influences but again there is a strong olive oil, green olive note on this, combined with what could be soy sauce that is overshadowing a lot of the finesse of the whisky.

      Starts very oaky but this soon gives way for a nice balanced sweetness of toffee and vanilla, but again, olive oil, soy sauce and rotten driftwood are killing this. One of the weirdest whiskies I ever had
