    This will be between 10-12 years old WB
    N: Dusty toffee apples, mildew wafers, dried coconut, straw, freshly cut red pippin apples, dry & faded potpourri, finely ground nuts, strawberry ice-cream, shortbread, hints of cheese on digestives with some port,… There’s a fair poke coming from this 40%’er.
    T: Initially sharp & strong then soft & soapy [lathers up quick], then shampoo, industrial/metals and drying. Yikes, it’s really rather ugly, what a shame.
    F: Attempts at some normality after the freak show. Chocolate tries a move in a desperate attempt to disguise the shampoo, accompanied by some mildly sweet witch hazel.
    C: There’s a fairly broad consensus among the commentators regarding this one – it’s best for nosing. A real shame that nose didn’t translate.

    Barely drinkable soap fest. Truly awful whisky.

    • Nose
      Fat, oil and cheese. Can't say it's bad but it's not my favourite.
    • Taste
      Spicy entry and again that soapy taste but not that strong as in the edradour of the animal serie from moon import. I can't find anything positive in here and it just leaves me with a very bad taste.
    • Finish
      Long bad aftertaste.

  8. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    A rather decent nose, as in many of these older whiskies, but it's a bit of a mess afterwards... hot, cardboardy, metallic-tasting, and flat. It was probably a good thing this was bottled at 40% -- I may die otherwise.
