"Old Brown Label"

Note: LAWS suspects that the samples tasted below may not be representative of the true, original flavor of this whisky.  We believe the excessive soapy flavors, combined with the age of the bottle, indicate that over time the whisky has undergone some chemical processes (transesterification, and specifically saponification) which introduced new, bad flavors into the whisky not intended by the distillers.  However, we have kept these notes publicly posted so that others may compare their experiences with our own, or learn from our notes and observations.
Member Ratings and Notes
N: Oak tea chest.
P: Cough drops, medicinal, and.....very soapy!!
F: Long, lingering, and soapy, soapy, soapy!!
Very interesting, but that peculiar soapy taste makes this distinctly undesirable. 
Nose of apple cider, cherries, and soap.  Palate tastes like this was aged in a so-so (maybe 2nd fill) sherry cask.  Cherries again, plus an unwelcome kind of bitterness and soap.  The flavor intensifies in the finish, with wood notes.  This leaves me not really wanting more... there's a lingering bitterness, ash, and most notably SOAP.
