Safe and boring. This is what I call a Lawyers’ Whiskey — because it’s the sort of thing a high-priced attorney would have in his office, and he can say that it’s fancy and expensive, but it’s guaranteed to be inoffensive and “smooth” to whomever tries it.
Note to attorney friends: I will still happily drink this in your office.
Weak malt, fruit, strawberry Necco, oxidized chocolate (liked after melting and putting in the fridge) and cantaloupe skin with a light floral touch and a bit of wood that’s reminiscent of a box of tooth picks. Light and just sort of… “meh”.
Fruit, malt, spice and dried fruit with that same light floral touch and tooth-pick-like wood. The nose is a bit more complex than the palate where the whisky seems to flatline.
Short and watery with light notes of malt, fruit and a bit of earth.
- Uninteresting, but not offensive. Its biggest offense is just being weak and lack luster. I can make business cards that say I’m a doctor, but it doesn’t mean I am and just because it’s labeled as Special doesn’t mean that it is. -
