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: Caramel, candy corn, bourbony.
P: Pretty bland, just wood and a slight soapiness.
F: More soap emerges. 
Nose was nice, but then it went down the toilet.   In fact, I think I'll clean my toilet with the rest. 
Nose of dried apricots, with mild background spices, white wine, and some soap.  Palate is spicy-fruity-mild, lightly sweet.  Finish is medium-short and the same, with added bitterness and soap.  There's not much going on here that's good, and some things that are definitely bad.  D+/C-
