Nose:  Not much there, a bit medicinal, a bit of just ethanol.

Palate:  Sweet, medicinal, minty (in an artifiical way), vanilla extract, alcohol

Finish: bitter and minty.

 

Wow!  What a difference a still makes.  I believe this is the first malt whisky I've tasted from a continuous still and...yuck.  It's really hard to compare this to anything.  Tasting blind I might have guessed that it was a really bad craft distilled bourbon.
