"A very challenging, divisive whisky that people love or hate. It doesn't work for me. Nose of over-ripe figs, cough syrup, heavy chocolate, coffee, and berries. Something very funky in the taste, like rotten fruit mixed with leather, chocolate, figs, toffee, and a sprinkle of white pepper. But these familiar flavors combine into something really odd and not altogether pleasant."
