The comparison with Famous Grouse, Bells, Johnny Walker, Ballentines etc. in the beginner class, he does not have to shy, Ballentines is as far as I can remember a little spicier, Johnny Walker Red a little smokier and edgy, the Famous Grouse is probably not entirely unlike. But honestly, 6 euros, that is perhaps the world's best PLV when it comes to whiskey.
Maybe a good 75 points, but the PLV tempts me to take the 80.
Caramel, malt, pear, honey, some vanilla, light and unpretentious, nothing is perfumed, all solid, straightforward, simple but aromatic. You do not have to tickle anything out, it's all there right away in a surprising intensity with no junk marks. You can imagine the young age, you also realize that there is not only single malt in it, but it is a nice soft blind nose.
soft due to the 40%, slight tingling from the alcohol, maybe even a minimal alcoholic note. Otherwise, the remains on caramel, malt and pear, a slight bitterness, and a hint of mint.
warm, barley malt, a little caramel, not so sweet, but rather a bit tart, a little citrus, oak is also not here, towards the end it is a little like a bowl of orange soda, that is for me a little the "Grain tail", have young and middle-aged blends quite like. That's not surprising to me.
