An important note: I am unable to deal with spicy heat. This review is honest, but may not be as informative as I'd like.
21 years old, distilled 25th March 1992, 60.4% abv, refill ex-bourbon barrel, 160 bottles
The nose has fudge, bubblegum, and a hint of lime. The body has BURNING HELL ON A STICK OH GOD MY F***ING TONGUE IS ON F***ING FIRE MAKE IT STOP PLEASE MAKE IT STOP PLEASE...
Too damned hot for me.
I add water to see the whorls - nice and thick, expanding quickly. After water, the nose has lost the bubblegum and gained a bit more lime, and a touch of lemon. The body is F*** THIS WAS A MISTAKE WATER MADE IT HOTTER OH GOD OH GOD THIS IS TORTURE GET ME A BEER OR WATER OR ANYTHING I THINK MY TONGUE JUST STOPPED WORKING!
I'd drink this if I took up masochism, or just wanted to make myself miserable. I should state that it's not a bad whisky, it just has a heat that I cannot handle, will not handle, and therefore it gets no score from me. I cannot score what I cannot taste.
