Nose
Some hideous confected RTD has been slipped in here. This is an explosion in a flavour lab: artificial strawberry, green apple, fake peach (shampoo),cherryade. With water an unpleasant aroma of rotting vegetables and old socks.
Palate
Sweet. It's a liqueur? It's a bad liqueur. Sticky and confected. I feel poisoned by E numbers.
Finish
Thick and sugary.
Comment
What sort of delusional person dreamt this up? Who allowed it to be bottled? Hideous.

Nose
Heady but not in a pleasant way. Like artificial aromas. Strawberry chewing gum. Varnish. Violet.
Palate
So sweet. It can't be a whisky. A liqueur. Again the same artificial notes.
Finish
Sweet,sweet,sweet and suddenly bitter.
Comment
What is that? Certainly not a drink I would like to have at home. For my enemies maybe,if I had any!
