It actually fizzed and tried to push the cork out, like it was trying to escape, neat,......dont try to sniff it, its like putting your head in the vat after they've added the yeast, taste, its warm, not feels warm, its actually warm, like its slightly radioactive, TCP, burnt rubber, has a vague cleansing aftertaste, like rinsing your mouth out at the dentist,, im not very poetic, but try soaking a peat brick in metholated spirits and having a suck, and your somewhere near, adding water/ice emeliorates the affect slightly, but only enough to make you want another.

25/25 is a very high score, is the dram really so balanced?

Pretty much, first it rips out your nose, then your throat, afraid i'm not much of a connoussuer, i'm far to practictal, i just know what i like, everythings objective, my wife bought me some Laddie 'Rocks' for christmas, wouldnt clean the sink with it, but its my friends favourite, go figure.

Be interesting to find out what others think, i might be really brave and try some more tonight, i'll not be trying it neat again though, just a nip of ice water or a cube or two
