Sometimes people get bored and decide to give in to stupid ideas. This week, me and a mate decided to try out the Loch Dhu, aka. the worst whisky in the world. Just for the fun of it. With so many reviews describing its legendary awfulness, our curiosity was sparked, so hell why not track down a bottle and try it out.
Unfortunately after some research on the web we concluded that £190 was a bit too much money to spend on something we knew we would regret later.
Thus I, slightly inebriated, came up with the idea to order a bottle online of a whisky that still haunts my worst nightmares: the Drumguish from the Speyside distillery. A distillery so awful, that I always imagine there would be an angry mob of local villagers, armed with torches and pitchforks, rallying outside its gates.
Nose: Dry, faint malty scents, fairly sweet actually: notes of coffee, pear,toffee and malted barley. (not as bad as I remember)
Mouth: Light, dry and watery: metallic undertones, burnt biscuits, menthol and toffee.
Finish: Medium, wet cardboard and that burnt aroma lingering in your mouth.
Not as bad as I remember, but what a disaster. The only right decision you can make is to screw of the cap and flush it down the drain. I hope some of the newer small scale distilleries like Daftmill and Stathearn have taken notes and will stay as far as they can from this style of whisky.
