Tasting notes
Nose: This is young and sweet. At first there’s a thin spirity note and a mild vanilla. There’s a shiny and slightly unpleasant distillate in the back with a metallic note within. There’s a tiny hint of caramel and cherries in between the distillate and the vanilla. It’s quite shallow and doesn’t pop out of the glass. There are notes of honey, oak and liquorice as well, but it comes out a bit flat overall. This is a so and so nose which really suffers from the low ABV.

Mouth: It starts out with a really unpleasant and young distillate and a tiny spicyness coming from the immidiate oakiness. There’s caramel with a weird hard-to-place flavour within which really doesn’t fit. It seems to come from the oak but doesn’t belong there. The whole is sharp and pointy and slightly bitter in the back. The caramel increase in intensity after a while.

Finish: The unpleasant distillate take front through the transition and fortunatly dies down rather quick. It does stick around in the back for a while. The finish is all about a very dry new oakiness. It’s not a bad oakiness, just a standard one. It feels like a relief since it covers up some of the initial unpleasantries. This is a bad whisky which unsuccessfully tries to mimic Jack Daniels. It doesn’t come close.
