    I’ll be honest, it’s way harder to score a shit whisky, than a great one. It’s hard to find motivation to write a review because this is supposed to be a fun hobby. I would say anything less than 50/100 is a drain pour. This is barely above that level. So that’s how I arrive at my score. It could very well be cork taint, but whatever it is, it’s awful. Somehow better without water, but that’s no consolation. I’ll save it for my most fierce enemies and my mother in law.
    • Nose
      50 50
      Wet newspaper, cardboard, dusty Apple, burlap, grainy vanilla. Can’t get much past the paper/cardboard notes. A little toffee. Very hot. Even with a lot of water. Not good.
    • Taste
      60 60
      Cardboard, paper mache, musty, corn husk, peach maybe, Apple. With water it’s the same. Full mouthfeel
    • Finish
      55 55
      Long (unfortunately) with notes of...yes it’s cardboard and paper mache again. Chalky, vitamins. Again you could be generous and find a couple of fruits, but it’s dominated by musty cardboard, husk, chalky. Still the best part of a bad whisky.
