    Dufftown-Glenlivet ‘SS Wallachia’ (Peter Dawson, Scotch Whisky, sunken 1895 in the Clyde) With Patrick. The distillery’s name is embossed in the bottom of the bottle, but there aren’t any pieces of label left of course. This one was retrieved by sport divers from the wreck of the SS Wallachia, a cargo ship that sank in the firth of Clyde on September 25, 1895 after having been rammed in the bows by a Norwegian steamer.We had tried another whisky from the same shipwreck, a Robert Brown that had remained kind of fresh and clean after more than 100 years under 34 metres of dirty water. But this one is another bottle, with a dark glass that’s seemingly covered with a thin layer of tar… Colour: gold. Nose: some kind of stale diesel oil mixed with rotten cabbage, Chinese 1000 years old eggs, long forgotten Japanese nato, durian, surströmming, decomposing flesh and rotting floated wood. Also burnt tyres. Utterly awful, makes you cry. Instantly. Mouth: burnt plastic, rotten mud, dead animals of many kinds including aquatic (of course), rotten cabbage, sludge, rust… And death. Finish: totally foul. Fading traces of damned souls. Comments: utter abomination. Probably toxic. Please call our lawyers. SGP:022 – minus 20 points.Honest.
