This is how I imagine the taste of the sewage in the sewer system when it rains shortly after New Year's Eve and all the black powder is flushed out of the firecrackers.
The taste of this distillate doesn't suit me at all and is far from the Scottish tastes that I enjoy so much. To be honest, I am also amazed how the whisky got such high ratings, as I cannot imagine that this taste will be liked by everyone.
Anyway ... who still enjoy tasting it, I will not shorten the brand any further :-)
Addendum: smelled the glass again the next day and my impression was confirmed. Sulfur and burnt black powder pull in my nose, I don't like this form very pleasant, smells almost a bit harmful to my health.
The nose (undiluted) is rather restrained and not that wrong at all. At this point in time you don't notice the notes that I will find in the taste later.
Hui, it's not mine. How do you describe a whisky that doesn't appeal to you at all ... bitter, sulphurous. It is uncomfortable to rinse it in the mouth and thus to distribute the taste even more, whereby the alcohol does not have a disturbing effect despite the high percentage.
When the penetrant taste has subsided and you wait a minute until the mouth has acclimatized a bit, there are a few more notes that don't taste as strictly chemical anymore ... but that doesn't make the whisky really good.
Sorry but I don't get warm with him.
