This was my first foray into the Lowland Region. I bought this bottle last year when I was exploring the different whisky regions, and it is still nearly full. I suppose that tells you how much I have enjoyed this dram!
Nose: Vanilla, overwhelmed by a strong alcohol smell. VERY 'spirity'. Malty notes. Nose tingle. Sharp citrus. Harsh.
Body: AUGH! Sharp citrus. Painfully so.
Palate: It has the finish of Everclear, or some cheap grain alcohol. Sharp and harsh, and long (which just makes it worse.)
Ok, I did it. I took the sip, and tasted the whisky. Please don't make me do that again. That is the most foul, disgusting, single malt whisky I have ever tasted. This is a whisky in need of a wood finish, age, or something. I've heard the Auchentoshan Three Wood is good, but after tasting this bottle, I don't want anything to do with this distillery.
