Nose: An earthy dark beer, marmalade, jam, lime, toast, butter. With time- Nail polish, more floral Irish notes- Grass, sweet oak, more Stout and steak. An awful combination.
Taste: Very creamy arrival, then nothing for a second, then developing dark beer, toast, marmalade, some oak, some salt and grass. Weird flavours, thin again.
Finish: Medium length. Bitter cheap coffee and tannins, unfortunate. Shudders
Partially matured in Ex-Stout casks. I don't like beer, esp. Stout. Probably explains why I really don’t like this. I’m sure there are worse whiskies out there, but for the moment this is my lowest score I’ve given a whiskey.
