  1. jjkmlss scored this whisky 40 points Expert Junior

    THE WORST IRISH EVER. Artificial peat bomb with lame skills, just like new make.

    Anyone who likes this is a dram of moonshine from alcoholic, careful fellas.
    • Nose
      sea weed, rotten leaves, dried flower, lemon
    • Taste
      strong ethanol, sea weed, brine, burnt rubber, iodine, malt, herbs. Burning body with medium feel
    • Finish
      short with plastic, smoke and liquorice

    Blind tasting: HFW VBT5 sample 6.
    I wrote down that it smelled like a peated whiskey from Cooley distillery (note: I'm very unfamiliar with Irish whiskies), but that it seemed too peated for that. I.e. the distillery character is clearly noticeable in this one, but it is indeed more peaty than the one I know already, the Connemara Cask Strength.
    • Nose
      Candy upfront: Hard yellow marshmallow (schuimblokken), sugar candy 'necklaces' and wine gums. Peat and peach. Then whiffs of caramel, milk chocolate, salt and something like a garage (car polish and/or motor oil). With water a little vanilla and malt.
    • Taste
      The hard marshmallows again. Lime wine gums, Tumtums, peat, peach, chocolate and salt. Water brings out a little cardboard.
    • Finish
      Peat, marshmallow, dark chocolate, lime, peach and cigar boxes.

      Marine diesel and tool box, but not too intrusive. Getting fruity. Old apple, caramel. Becomes more pleasant and accessible over time.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Hearty, nasty. Red hot steel. Spicy ... Radish maybe? Little fruit. Second starter is sweeter at first, then hot as pepper.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Oily finish. Licked too much on the ship's motor once. Sticks to the palate and tongue for a long time!
