    An object of study is
    all this bottle is fit for, little else. If anybody fancies getting a dram, I
    have a bit left. Wanna experience
    OBE? Get in touch. You have been warned, though.
    • Nose

      Ah, OBE in full
      glory. If you are unfamiliar with OBE, Old Bottle Effect, then this nose will
      be quite a surprise. Gym shoes. You know, the horrible white sneakers without
      laces our kids have to wear in the sports arena at school. Steamed mushrooms
      also comes to mind. Earthy with milk that has been open to long. Interesting? Sure. Good? I
      do not think so. It
      totally overpowers the fruitiness this whisky would normally display. The only
      think my nostrils can still detect is a bit of caramel.
    • Taste

      On the palate, some
      sweetness does appear after struggling to the surface, but it is also
      astringently bitter. Caramel
      again, but absolutely no fruit. No, wait. A hint of pineapple. That is it.
    • Finish

      The finish is
      mercifully short on oak and liquorice.

  3. Feusi scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    Strange, smells earthy milky, not pleasing to come into the nose. Is an older bottling for Italy. Many remain bitter oaky notes on the palate.
