Member Ratings and Notes

n:  Lavendar soap.  Emphasis on soap.


p: F 1980s Bowmore.  Burned again.  Perhaps cleaned again is more accurate.  Soap.  Just soap.


N: Lots of burnt stuff (plastic and wood) with lots of malt and a hint of salt in the background

P:Soap soap soap.  The charred notes come throuh with a bit of sweetness followed by peat

F: Lavender soap


I tasted this at the distillery under the best of conditions... and I couldn't finish the glass. It was even complementary. I had no reason to feel spite. But it's not pleasant, and if you pour me a glass of this, I will feel very spiteful.


NOTE TO SELF: In the future, when you wonder why distillers have stopped giving you free whisky, refer to this note.
