Nose: Initially had the character of a chlorine cleaning agent, which I've never experienced in a whisky. Strange. After brief sitting this changes to pear, with perhaps soft strawberry.

Taste: Oily in character, and spicy hot, with the sharp burn of red peppers.

Finish: Continuing spiciness with some harsh oaky tannins.

If I had to try this one again, I would cool it down with some ice to put out the fire. But for my tastes I will move on to others that I would consider more balanced. I have no prior experience with Duncan Taylor's NC2 range (non-chillfiltered & non-colored), though, so I'm still open to trying others of theirs.
