This bottle was given to me as a gift from my mum, who managed to pick up a litre bottle fairly cheap on her way back from Spain. So I guess I shouldn't really complain about it!
It's got a very light gold colour, almost yellow in the light of my room! The smell is powerful, but not really in a great way. I picked up an almost antiseptic aroma, sterile and even bland. Now I'm not sure if it's just a bad bottle, because I went back to it a few days afterwards and got the same experience.
The taste wasnt spectacular, it didnt seem as though there was much going on, but it was very strong and powerful. There was a metallic feel to it, and the finish seemed sharp and very short.
In summary, I can't imagine a whisky like this is as decidedly average and disappointing as i've found it to be, so I hope I've just had a bad bottle, but I can only score it on what I've tasted! I wouldnt buy a bottle for myself, at least until I've tasted one that comes across as an improvement.
