Nose: A thin smell with some salt and sour, and a trace of wood in the background.
Flavour: Salty with some sweetness at the front of your mouth. Initially a lot stronger than you'd expect considering it's smell, but it vanishes quite quickly.
Body: Starts at the front of your mouth, but then fades away suddenly.
Comments: It's sad it doesn't fulfil the expectations of the first sip. Otherwise it would have been a great whisky.
