The Panel were dismayed to encounter such a deliberately terrible whisky! To look upon the colour you might imagine this was a stunningly concentrated dram infused with deeply syrupy peat aromas. Or that it may contain notes such as ancient balsamico, natural tar liqueurs, herbal wood smoke and root beer syrup. Alas! It is dreadful and must be avoided like Vogon poetry. In happier circumstances water might have brought further notes of umami paste, salted honey, iodine drops and menthol tobaccos.

If you were to stoop to putting this whisky in your mouth you would certainly not find the most thrilling fusion of tars, oils, peat extracts and exotic wood resins. Neither, should you then add water, would you encounter sublime and graceful power, length, depth, complexity and the beauty of a perfect fusion of sherry and peat. Hopefully this tasting note has assisted you in avoiding this wicked distillate. Please ensure all bottles of this grog are safely disposed of at SMWS Canada’s headquarters. Matured for 11 years in a wretched bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a definitely NOT sublime refill American oak Pedro Ximénez sherry hogshead. Bottled for the 2023 Islay Whisky Festival.
