...and this Strathmill is the worst of the pack (so far). Both nose and palate are almost non-existent - they smell and taste just like sweetened alcohol only. This sample goes down the drain, no way I will drink such stuff!
The colour is jonquiripe corn which provides some hope for an enjoyable nose but unfortunately this nose is almost non-existent. I have hard times to catch any aromas at all even after longer oxidation. I just smell alcohol and some hints of the wood, that is it. What the hell are you doing, Diageo? This is a shame!
The taste is close to non-existent too, this is nothing else than sweetened alcohol . I refuse to drink such stuff, where is the spittoon? By the way, water does not help either. This whisky did not mature at all, the casks were completely dead.
The dram arrives a little hot (alcoholic) but without any traceable mouthfeel on my palate. The finish is a little better and I would say it is (almost) of medium length but it adds no new impressions, unfortunately.
