It's unusual this one, not like any whisky I have tried before. That can go one of 2 ways and unfortunately it falls on the side of bad. Earthy, spicy and metallic, with a hint of sake in there also. It didn't do it for me.

This whisky is a real individual. It certainly is fragrant with floral notes, parma violets, leather and I would even say shoe polish. Under no circumstances would I say rubber though. I could neither confirm nor deny whether is smells of "tire" due to my unfamiliarity with tires, lest this whisky double as a benzodiazepine. The palate is equally soft and fragrant and I would recommend this highly to anybody looking for something different.

I would rather consider it as a tire liquor or any anything else based on rubber...
