Nose
Lightly oiled aromas of hard barley, acetone, linseed oil and lightly cardboard spices. A touch of honey and vanilla attempts to brighten the nose.
Palate
Opens with light toffee, but the hard as nails barley crashes the party, dragging some musty spices and acetone in its wake. The oak is becoming quite bitter too!
Finish
Medium length with lingering industrial notes and a late injection of coffee.
Comment
I know that there are a number of people out there that love this type of whisky, but I'm afraid that I'm not one of them!

Nose
Fascinating nose that wavers between sweaty pineapples, blueberries, cough syrup, cherries, powdered ginger and something sherbet-like.
Palate
Weird, beer-like, almost something akin to a hoppy IPA. Then pineapples, citrus peel and blackcurrant sweets.
Finish
Dandelion and burdock notes to finish. A little bitter, with some additional hints of dark chocolate.
Comment
Dark and slightly medicinal. Reminds me a bit of mirto. It's confusing but weirdly attractive.
