Someone just sent me a bottle of this too. I looked at the label and thought it was a joke. Absolutely heinous.

Vintage ice crusher brah. Mine was $4 at a thrift store and looks awesome on the bar.

$ 4 I'd do. New ones that are somewhat decent are around 20-40 €. Don't see the need.

How did you feel about the whiskey itself though? Just an interesting observation. Drink the majority of the serving. Leave a swig left in the glass. Come back to it in fifteen minutes. Then drink it. Honestly, the most terrible tasting swig I have ever had in my life. I have never experienced anything like it. Maybe this is why they opted for a screw down rather than a cork top? When exposed to air, the air absolutely DESTROYS this whiskey.

I haven't opened the bottle yet.

Your story, while I'm sure true to your experience, makes little sense to me. Whiskey is aged exposed to air so the oxidation of 15 minutes in a glass is almost entirely inconsequential in affecting the taste of the spirit. If anything, 15 in the glass would mellow it out some by allowing some of the alcohol vapor to dissipate.

Perhaps someone tried to poison you in the 15 minutes you left the whiskey to sit? biggrin.gif

Honestly, it is the strangest thing I have ever experienced. Maybe I will try to take a picture or something? If you look (deep) into some reviews of the spirit, there are others who have a similar experience. Let me see if I can locate it.

I swear, I have NEVER experienced anything like it.

Martinez: 1 oz Ransom Old Tom gin, 2 oz Dolin sweet vermouth, dash Angostura bitters

This is a Negroni variation called a Chin Chin.

2 oz Citadelle gin
1 oz NP red vermouth
1 oz Cynar (hence the "Chin Chin")
orange rind

I'll have a Trident in a bit. I'm deciding on what Negroni variant to cask age tomorrow.

A casked Negroni made with Gran Classico would be awesome. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Mmmmm, I have recently found that the Ransom is really yummy in cocktails. Genever, too, so I imagine that is pretty tasty.No Maraschino?
