Obviously a maturation in very bad casks. Difficult to find the spirit (apart from a hot/burning feel) behind that nasty wood.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Musty. Rotten damp wood. Quite woody. Cooked vegetables. Hint of sulphur (cabbage water?).
Palate: And the taste in not different. Grippy, hot.
Finish: Hard to vanish, unfortunately.
Comment: Obviously a maturation in very bad casks. Difficult to find the spirit (apart from a hot/burning feel) behind that nasty wood.
Nose: Leaf mulch, filled humidors, a little dank mossy edge to it.
Palate: Pretty much follows the nose. Dank forest floors, that humidor note as well.
Finish: There is a spice kick here.
Comment: Hard to know whether to keep trying with this or give up.
