I enjoyed the nose, but over all this was not my cup of whisk-tea.
There is a distinct note of dark ale. Not to such a degree that you wonder where the foam hat has gone, but it's an interesting although unusual touch to a whisky.
Cereals add to the impression that this smells more like a brew than a distilate.
Other than that it is pretty muted and soft.
It's sweet, but there's also some dry bitterness.
I find some of the cereal notes on the nose to become almost queasy floral for a moment.
I enjoyed the uniqueness of the nose, but I'm not too sure about the pallate.
It's got the aftertaste of peppered dark ale.
A bit too sweet.
