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.
Nose of toffee, light sherry, vague fruits, and marzipan. Palate is light, sweet, malty, with medium spice. Nicely mouth-coating and medium-bodied. Soap hints detract. In the finish is more spice, and oatmeal emerges. The little soap that shows up taints the whole experience.
