    N: The level of this miniature was half full so it’s looking ominous from the start, but it’s not always a disaster. I notice too that the inside of the lid has gone mouldy and developed a green/brown fungal stain and damp smell. As a result, it smells like wet rot.

    T: Tastes like damp wood that has been masticated. It’s gone, totally gone.

    F: 

    C: Shame, because this is lovely whisky when intact. Let’s hope for something drinkable next.

    A decent sherried malt but nothing out of the ordinary regarding its depth of profile.
    • Nose
      Leather, cooked meats but I mainly get corned beef, heavy sherry, varnish, walnut.
    • Taste
      Nutty, cardboardy, cooked meats again on slightly bitter toffee.
    • Finish
      Medium length on bitter chocolate mingling with the sherry notes.
