  1. Cask1988 scored this whisky 2 points Connoisseur

    2 years after I tasted this on my holiday in Egypt I ran into a forgotten sample. I had to bring some of it home or my whiskyfriends just wouldn’t have imagined how bad this is. Normally i don’t do scores but this is so obvious. A 1 score is already to much. Minus 20 would indeed be worth giving.
    • Nose
      Industrial alcohol. Undrinkable.
    • Taste
      Oh man is it even ethyl alcohol or is it just straight forward poisonous, toxic liquid and methyl alcohol?
    • Finish
      I felt the need of running to a hospital and buy a new mouth, gullet, liver and stomach

    Pretty sure this is not made of grain. Smells of rotten bananas and warm garbage.

  7. Kilo1 scored this whisky 29 points Expert Senior

    I tried this all-inclusive system. Drinking it is not at all. Infernal mixture. I have the lowest rating.

  8. Malthead19 scored this whisky 17 points Connoisseur

    I think the worst "whiskey" (if this stuff is allowed to call it that) that I've drunk in my life (currently over 800) ... but I've pulled it to the end.

    - very young very "unusual" and low-quality whiskey,
    - tastes strongly of another brandy, somehow reminiscent of a mixture of cheap "whiskey fusel blend" and a plum brandy
    - significantly worse than known cheap whiskey / whiskey brands
    - not really recommended even in cola
    - price acc. WB approx. 3-5 $ => as cheap as it tastes
    - theoretically drinkable (albeit with a lot of effort)
    - did not lead to nausea, but was by no means a pleasure

    => Recommendation: In the car in the windscreen wiper system for the winter.
    • Nose
      completely burning, very pungent smell,
      Approaches of wood, a bit malty
    • Taste
      burns strong, young, very lively but also somehow slightly fruity (plum), very mentholic, anise, suddenly tastes somehow in the direction of ouzo or something (very strange taste)
    • Finish
      short sharp burning finish,
      medium-long mentholic fiery aftertaste

    The pops right. I am blind but full. Great fun. Does anyone know an importer for Germany?

  10. David Harper scored this whisky 1 points Newbie

    “Vile” isn’t an option in the tasting notes, so let’s just go for “solvent”. And that really is all that it should be used for. It has a very odd but thoroughly unpleasant flavour. The best thing that can be said is that it is at least the right colour.
    • Nose
    • Taste
      REALLY nasty
    • Finish
      I didn’t finish it

  11. coldsun scored this whisky 6 points Expert Senior

    Aweful. Only alcohol present. And tiny hints of anise.

  12. coldsun scored this whisky 6 points Expert Senior

    I am sorry, but it is not a whiskey at all. Smells like "samogon" and taste is the same.

  13. Erik1908 scored this whisky 2 points Expert Senior

    I was at the same table as WB-member "Defeatless" when tasting this whisky, or should I say "spirit". This has indeed nothing to do with what we call whisky. None of us finished our dram but threw it away.

  15. Defeatless scored this whisky 2 points Expert Senior

    Ultra sweet and some flowers.

    Utterly disgusting, Couldn't drink it. Ever so sweet, this has nothing to do with whisky

    Don't know, went sick

    Well an strange finish of bread and chocopaste. Which was my lunch which went out

    $3,- for a 1 liter PET bottle isn't much. But next time I will charge them $30,- for a sip

    Every so modern: PET bottles

    Can I give -20 points please?
