I had this dram last night, when visiting friends. While the bottle looks nice enough and the color is fine, as is the viscocity, this dram was not impressive. At all.
On the nose, you'll find malt and wood and a tad of butter. Not much else.
On the palate, nothing much happens.
Finish: what finish? It was gone before I got the chance to think about it.
Not worthy of your time and tastebuds, in my book. Pity.
When you have whiskies - you can have whiskies that you don't like, but worse than that are the whiskies with no character at all - that are so flat and boring that you aren't sure if you could come to an opinion as to whether or not you should like it.
Always good to one around though, for those barbarians who see you whisky collection and ask if they can have a glass, and then ask for coke... :p
Maybe the guy who offered it to me thought exactly that: 'I'm not giving this guy the good dram, let him have a glass of this sh*t'. Wait until I see him again!
