Wiser's Very Old 18
I opened a bottle of Wiser's Very Old 18 last weekend, and found it just ok. The nose and palate were pleasant, but I was getting an overwhelming flavor of Elmer's glue on the finish. I'm tasting it again this evening, and when first poured in the glass, I also get acetone on the nose. Fortunately this has essentially disappeared after about 5 minutes. Sadly, the glue on the finish is still there.
N: Butterscotch, damp soil
P: Cereal grains, pound cake, yoghurt
F: Elmer's glue
I'm not even sure I'm using the right term to describe how the Elmer's glue flavor arrives, as I don't taste it on the tongue. Rather, it's a powerful flavor at the back of the mouth after swallowing. If I keep my mouth closed and breath through my nose, no glue flavor. But if I breath through my mouth after swallowing the whisky, pow, there it is.
I know a few people here have tried this whisky, so what do you think? Is there a chance I've gotten a "bad bottle" - seems unlikely as it has a screwcap rather than cork - or is this whisky just not for me?
