Nose: a surprising aroma of bitter oranges. Not a bad start, though quite hot with alcohol fumes. Water brings out an odd astringency.

Taste: light-bodied and rather flat until the bitter, hop infused finish kicks in. Some vague pine notes float around, but doesn't make much of an impression.

Finish: Bitter and short.

Balance: based on this tasting, this is a failed experiment and quite a poor whisky. The hops flavouring creates an interesting, though not necessarily desirable, aroma, but other than that this doesn't have much going for it. Maybe fans of really hoppy beer will find some appeal, but I will stick with the vastly superior Double Still Rye. Or, for that matter, the standard Deluxe blend.
