I was throughly disappointed with this whisky. I'd heard others say that the barrel select bottling of Forty Creek was prone to sulfur contamination but I bought a bottle anyways hoping for the best. Damn the luck! All was looking good for the first few drams and then with a quarter of the whisky gone an overwhelming sulfur bomb went off inside the bottle and the other 3/4 became horridly tainted. I still give this dram a 60/100 due to first impressions but docked at least 25 points due to the unacceptable taint. Better without water when it isn't mired in sulfur.
