First Impression: DYC Single Malt Aged 10 Years

[40.0%・10 Years Old・Official Bottling・General Release]

Nose:

Quite green and quite spirity, industrial with the barley grist and artificial with the butterscotch overloading.  Caramel and shoe box, pre-loved shoes.

Palate & Finish:

Sugary water, toffee diluted with water with quite a new make-esque presence.

A bitter-ish after taste that unfortunately sticks on though it’s weak enough such that it doesn’t do any real damage.  Still, it’s not atrocious.

Thoughts:

This whisky evokes fond memories of my formative years, in particular the reasons why I didn’t like “whiskies” at all.  I have been subsequently told that there is a social stigma in Spain against drinking Scotch and well, this is certainly the anti-Scotch, unfortunately though, this is not the worst whisky I have had this year..
