    I have no idea why this is bottled at 40% because it's extremely obvious the body just doesn't work at that ABV, unless of course it hides some flaws that would pop out more at a higher strength?

    Trying this, Superstition (76pts) and the current 16yo (77pts) in a lineup (I prefered this one to the other two although all are IMO substandard for single malts), I noticed the smell of broadsheet newspapers was common to all three. All three wiskys had a flat and unimpressive body, and at the end of the tasting I was left wondering why this distillery even exists.

    Interesting ? Sure. Enjoyable ? Not really ...
    • Nose
      Dry lavender honey, dusty-salty caramel ... and then unripe acidic fruits galore : sour red apples, redcurrants, blueberry-flavoured chewing-gum. More on the sour, austere side : raw cake dough, bagel, ginger, gets leafier with soon plenty of bitter walnuts. As you delve deeper, you'll find very unusual notes of old-style mustard and freshly printed magazines. Anti-sexy, anti-modern somehow. Not bad so far.
    • Taste
      Void arrival on nothing more than bitter water for the first two seconds. Then the tragedy begins : cheap cold coffee, sweaty clothes, bitter walnuts and mustard again, ... Brussels Sprouts, really ? Not so enjoyable now.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly not that short and above the palate by a fair margin : back on its former acidic fruitiness with notes of rhabarber. Faint whiffs of coke, dry liquorice stick ... but these damp newspapers and this spinach-infused cheap coffee are still hanging around, and I can't get over them.

  8. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Solid nose, suggestion of cake with orange then porridge, tapioca, fungal, undergrowth, plum and perspiration. Simple, flat and linear mouth on malt. Final short, steep. Too diluted.
