This has quite a pungent nose that I'm not sure how to describe. It is a bit soapy and processed, with quite a strong alcohol presence. There really is quite a strong off note here for me, and this all transfers to the palate. The finish rescues it a bit, with quite a nice malty flavour lingering, but the nose and palate prevent making it anything for which I would reach again. I tried adding water and leaving it to breathe for some time, but there was no improvement.
This was only from a sample, and I'm not sure whether this may have been a bad batch, but I was very disappointed by this as I was expecting quite good things. I think that this is possibly my least favourite whisky so far. I'd rate it lower than Jura 10 and superstition, both of which I found utterly lacking in character. But superstition, at least, is quite swiggable, whereas this just made me turn my nose up a bit.
