    scbp-6440, the whisky below the pass line, although not green, but the stimulation makes it completely unpalatable, very bad.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Very normal bourbon barrel profile, not a lot of coconut flakes and cream, barley sugar, grass, bearing lubricant, new leather, sea salt, white flower essential oil, a hint of grapefruit peel, and green apple. 83

      You can get some post-2000 Bowmore feel, but it's so rough. Although only 50 degrees, it is very aggressive, white sugar, beet, essential oil, watermelon white, sea salt, heavy astringency, grapefruit peel white. The wine is lean and slightly barley fat, and the tail is full of spices and has a strong sense of stimulation. p75b76

      Heavy salt, slightly astringent, deep bitterness, wood bitterness, strong mustard feeling. 74
