A pirate Lego ship (as agreed with Iain) - fake, sweet, woody. Too much sugar. Prune syrup. Blackcurrant juice. The colour -Madmen. This must have caramel added to it. Tinned nectarines. Lit paper. Over cooked toffee. Rum? Rum and raisin ice cream. Date syrup.
Wow...#fakewhisky #letsfakewhisky way too sugary, no depth . Oooo. Rotting melons (in a good way). Rich. Marzipan and vanilla. It's nae Scottish! A mosh pit of foreign aftershave. Slow-acting popping candy. Strangely spicy. Tamarind. Quite a bang at first. Quite Kavalan-esque. Wood varnish.

Just sugar. Fireworks. Excellent finish, dry and spicy. Fizzy cola bottles. Was literally going to say fireworks. Aloe vera. Long and fruity. Loonnnnngggg.
Like this, got a strong flavour. A little hot, but a great overall feeling. It's the fizziest whisky I've ever had. It's clear I don't know how this works. This one gives me the hiccups. Sweeter with water. It's clear I don't know how this works. Https:// Definitely better with water. Martin. Put on milk man by deerhoof, loud. Liz, 1.6 ??! Https:// I think with time its grown to a 7 or 6.9.
