  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Started promising, but the wood was a little too dominant on the palate to warrant a higher score.
    • Nose
      Soft candy-esque strawberries, cherries and raspberry. A hint of rose petals, as well as honey and caramel-glazed, baked apples. Some After Eights after a little while. Pretty enticing.
    • Taste
      Treacle, dried red fruits and a hint of cocoa powder. Very sweet. Pretty intense spicy notes too. Mostly wood spices. Slightly astringent too.
    • Finish
      Drying, spicy. The sweetness returns after a while.

  5. ctu scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Good value for money, but far from the best port finish.
    • Nose
      Floral. Caramelized apples, honey, forest fruits and Haribo.
    • Taste
      Forest fruits, spicy oak, cocoa, honey, citruses and wine.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, dry.

  9. Schnappsdrossel did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Smells sweet and fruity. Plus cherry cough sweet. Tastes of gummy bears plus tobacco. The fruit sticks in the finish. Delicious. He is better than the Tomatin Port, for example. He does not hit an Ardmore for a long time. And almost 60 € is very ambitious.

  10. NTC scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    A promising whisky, but the port wood notes were a little bit to overpowering in this whisky.

    Nose: honey, sweet spices, hints of rosé wine and black choclate.

    Taste: honey, dark choclate, red wine, anijs, and a light wood taste.

    Finish: a medium lasting finish mostly spicey and dry.
