    NoseOdd for a Speyside. Amongst its maltiness there are hints of tall
    grass (that is cut and damp) and air from a rubber tire. Those last two
    notes are usually not good indicators for a good sipping experience.PalateI remember this whisky getting worse with every sip. Let’s see what
    happens this time. At first I find it average at best and those negative
    notes from the nose do not carry over as strong as I thought they
    would. Unfortunately, with additional sips they become more pronounced
    and I find myself not wanting to finish the glass. I actually feel
    myself starting to get one of those faces that kids get when they are
    fed a vegetable they do not like.FinishBitter and not what I want it to be. It feels like I have breathed in too much air at a tire factory.With WaterDidn’t get that far.What I thinkI found this bottle at a local off-the-beaten-path liquor store. How
    this bottle got there and why it has supposedly on the shelves for 15
    years is beyond my comprehension. Although it is a big disappointment I
    enjoyed the experience. Not all bottlings from an independent bottler
    are going to be good and this is my first of what will probably be at
    least a few more.
