Excerpt: They could counteract some of that by releasing the Uuahouua Sherry Wood Single Malt at no less than 46% and being non-chill filtered. A young whisky like this would benefit greatly from having less water in it and retaining all of its oils.
Excerpt: Too bad the flavors are profoundly bitter and minty, producing an expression on this reviewer’s face like a flinching child reluctantly ingesting an unwelcome spoonful of medicine. More palatable and fruity as it dilutes, some spearmint returns on the finish, but it was game over by then.

I'll be completely honest, this bottle was an impulse buy. I was out looking for a good sherry bomb (ended up with a bottle of ABunadh at the time this trip happened) and while I was poking around the scotch section, an employee came over and asked what I was interested in. He suggested this bottle, and for a mere $30, I thought, why not. 7 years in sherry didn't seem so awful and I was having guests that weekend so I knew if it was lacking, I'd have plenty of guinea pigs, er, I mean guests to pawn it off on. This one is distilled in Austria.
Honey and grain with a touch of sherry sweetness
Very thin mouthfeel with a lot of honey and ethanol. It feels younger and a lot of the other notes like sherry, vanilla and cinnamon get crushed under the watery honey.
Short, not overly harsh, but very one dimensional.
It's not great and it's not terrible but this one certainly lacks a lot of dimensionality and complexity. It's very low ABV and general lack of character make it hard to suggest, even at the price point.
