N: Sweet and funky, smells like sugar candy.
P: Sweet, Sweet, Sweet. 
F: Sweet and winey.
Usually if I give something a C it's because it's totally bland and boring.  That is certainly not the case here.   But this tastes more like a desert wine (i.e. Tokaji) than whisky to me, and it's so sickly sweet I couldn't finish the glass.    Somebody might like this, I didn't.

Peat is absent, unlike other Longrows, yet nothing like a Springbank either.  Reminded me of a bad tea (granted, I hate tea) that just made for a wierd experience although not hostile in any direct way.  Taste before buying.

 

Retry 6/15/20

 

n:  Tennessee iced sweet tea.

 

p: Tea, day old wine, and half a bag of white sugar.  The finish sticks forever although I wouldn't call that a good thing.

 

C+

Surprisingly challenging to drink. On some sips I really dislike this, and then others I was like "Wait a minute, I think this is kinda good!" then after a few more it was like, "Nope, eww." Repeat. Very oddly sweet and cloying, yet on some sips I thought I'd warm up to it... yet didnt.
