  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I like this kind of filling, if they are not completely overcranked. Fits here very well. For the price I got the bottle for, the PLV absolutely fits. Gladly again :-)
    • Nose
      Beautiful nose, smoke and a lot of fruit, a little cinnamon, red wine, light dryness, pickled sour cherry, then comes from time to time the sherry sweetness, light freshness, then it comes through the youth, nuts, ganache, just my thing
      With water, he opens something, it comes to a bubbly raspberry
    • Taste
      wow, head-on smoke, cinnamon, spicy, dry, nuts, astringent, light sweetness on the palate, dry red wine notes, red wine dominated here, full-bodied and intense, with a creamy touch, a hint of dark chocolate, the back becomes stronger
    • Finish
      behind the back, dry ashy smoke, the whole mouth is very dry, which contracts properly, the second sip also clearly the dark chocolate, as if you had sucked a piece of 100% chocolate.
