Neat- tried cut and uncut. Uncut, the pour is a viscous amber orange with honey viscosity. Widely spaced legs emerge. The nose is very meaty with fatty steak. An overall soft nose is accentuated by honey, lavender, mild spicy alcohol. Taste brings dried Ancho chilis, spicy orange peel, subdued alcohol heat. Finish is woody, unbalanced in the tannin department giving off character akin to Johnny Walker Gold or some sort of wildly inferior whiskey. Palate is very thick and honey viscous.

Cut, the aroma improves with less fatty and gamy steak and more honey barbecue ribs. Still, sort of hard to pick out the great flavors with so much horsey and gamy notes in the nose.

This is not an everyday dram...I've found it more enjoyable as a chaser or after an evening of gentler Speysiders... great as a contrast and where you really appreciate it... but horrible it isn't
