  1. rottendon scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A pleasant standard smoker, nothing special but absolutely round. Because of the contest, I'm typing on Connemara, without this background I would probably have landed on Islay. Ardmore could fit too ...

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Edith gently: I had devalued it in the second round from 2- (85P.) To 3 (82P.). I should probably try it a third time ...
    • Nose
      The first impression is that of warm vanilla pudding with vanilla ice cream and lime juice. I also think to perceive smoke here. With some life, the smoke is clear and initially dominant, while it has a distinct phenolic phenotype. There are light yellow fruits (peach, mirabelle) and woodruff, plus some sweat and disinfectant. It becomes much more phenolic when heated.
    • Taste
      Begins fruity, sweet-sour, then develops the typical dark malty peat-sweetness, slightly salty. The alcohol is not particularly powerful, the mouthfeel rather thin.
    • Finish
      Only little residual heat, the sweetness is quickly gone, the tongue remains covered with ash for a while.
