  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The wood is probably not active here, but the quality of the distillate is still questionable.
    • Nose
      Metallic, fresh almonds, unpleasant for me
    • Taste
      Quite nutty and medicinal. More metal, one dimensional, sour barley
    • Finish
      Metal again, barley, feel not matured
