Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of cedar, apples, wet leaves, and pool water.  Palate is plain, very lightly sweet and fruity, with an odd chemical note.  Finish is... whatever.  I don't even know what to say about this.  This is closer to a very crappy grain whisky, or a weird and lousy vodka (though I tend to find most vodka disagreeable), along with other notes of... echhhhh.  I'd give it an F, except it's not entirely undrinkable... just very nearly so.  One of the few bottled spirits I've actually found frightening -- after a few sips, I began to fear it was poison. 
This is the lightest colored whiskey I've ever seen, I'm afraid that it's not whiskey.  There's a faint grainy funk.   Tastes like nothing.  I don't think this is right, stopped after a few sips, whatever it is, terrible.
