    Very pleasant for the price. A nice whisky
    • Nose
      Sherry wort, dark berries, fudge. Tobacco, oak, something soapy (typically Edradour). Very pleasant nose.

    So this whisky is often underestimated. I was also about to forget him. Had me blinded by the 15er. Thanks to "Witsche" for the input. Here you get high average for a fair price. Well balanced like the PLV, it then goes into the last round. He persevered ... respect!
    • Nose

      Burnt sugar over all kinds of mixed sherry notes, including a hint of leather & tobacco. He starts very sweetly and stays warm. Water helps. You get delicious fruits that are rare in this price range and age. It only takes a little time here, then this nose is not to be despised.
    • Taste

      There is a very beautiful body in the mouth. With sweet vanilla, it makes the hot nose disappear again. Deliciously spicy and sweet and sour, he underpins the earthy wooden tans that dance on the tongue. Ok ... you have to like this texture. Not for everyone. But especially!
    • Finish

      Medium to long and sweet with ripe fruit, it goes spicy with an earthy hint of wood. Refilling is the order of the day. And that means something. Really well done for a 12er.

  8. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet; Caramel; roasted nuts like at the fair. Dark fruit, raisin, syrup; spicy wood note; light orange; light herbs and a hint of damp tobacco, sweet vanilla
    • Taste
      Caramel; Coward; the tobacco turns into a light leathery note, sherry, but also slightly vanilla or a hint of honey. Again and again dark dried fruit, sometimes sweet, sometimes a bit tart. I find the barrel influence pleasant, does not become too bitter.
    • Finish
      Oak; becoming drier, spicy; gets nutty out at the back, delicious

  10. Pyromann scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Good, interesting piece of sweeter character. Chocolate sweetness prevails. Nice thing, I recommend.
    • Nose
      Chocolate, heavier sweetness, some overripe fruit, chocolate cherries.
    • Taste
      Heavier chocolate sweetness even in taste, although here it is a bit sharper.
    • Finish
      Medium length, chocolate-caramel
