  1. Totoro scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    The name is program. PX and Rauch, full on the twelve. Despite the low price, no annoying or too young notes. You can do that if you don't mind the considerable amount of sherry with which the whisky was mixed here. ;)

      Smoke, sweetness. Tobacco, strong start. The 54% are noticeable
    • Finish

      Sweetness, smoke not as strong as in the nose and mouth

  3. PeatyGonzales scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    Nose:
    Sherry, smoke, liquorice, wood and coffee, dark grapes and a hint of clove, musty-sweet and noticeably alcoholic.

    Taste:
    Lots of sherry and damp cellar wood, not too much smoke, but sweet, dark, heavy and fruity. Has a lot of bums!

    Outlet:
    Relatively long, woody, rather dry, tobacco, leather, ash.

    Conclusion:
    Now not mega complex, but quite tasty (if you like the above). You can drink it straight, but it is quite tight. Really good for the price. Tastes better than it is. Nice part!

    It's a nice dram. You get PX with smoke as advertised but also in this order. This is the first time that the barrel swallows the smoke. But delicious.

    Shopkeeper called out this one is an Edradour

  6. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    So ... it was really delicious. And if you take the price into account, it's pretty awesome.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Red - brown

      Nose:
      A nice, dark sweetness comes towards me first. Behind it a fine, moist note of pipe smoke. The colleague smells so wonderful of sugared berries. Raspberries and cherries in a chocolate coating. I'll leave it ...
      With a little time in the glass comes a worn leather note. Something like leather work gloves. In addition, spicy wood and something like roasted almonds with a lot of brown sugar. Plums and juniper. In the background a little lime and slightly earthy.
    • Taste
      Spicy start. The alcohol tinkles pleasantly on the tongue. I immediately find a nutty bitterness here. In addition, this very pleasant pipe smoke aroma. Not a specialist now, but it doesn't taste like Islay. When the dry wave is through, the sweetness spreads out nicely and comfortably. A mix of berries, cherries and plums. There's something spicy that reminds me a bit of nutmeg. A metallic, rusty undertone is a little off the beaten track in the background. But fits nicely into the picture.
    • Finish
      Pleasantly long. First spicy and with dry, smoked herbs. Then pleasantly sweet at the end.

    PLV is an absolute upper class! Point
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very intensive. Lots of sweet sherry, red fruits and a lot of dirty smoke. More on the dry side from the smoke. Clear peanuts that are heavily roasted. Smoked meat and lots of sweetness!

      First sweet, then the dirty smoke and the red fruits. Slightly sour. Young but very tasty.
    • Finish

      Here he lives from alcohol and sweet smoke. Successful graduation.

  8. tangtang scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty smoker, nice mixture of flavors, pleases quite a lot and has a good PLV. Easy to drink, but not necessarily special.
    • Nose
      Smoky, sweet with sherry, spicy, citrus and dried fruits
    • Taste
      Smoky with sherry, spicy with fig and vanilla, some plums and dried fruits
    • Finish
      Smoky, with sherry, sweet with chocolate and caramel, spicy oak

  9. thijs100 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Oof Madone! If you don't like PX matured whisky, stay the hell away from this. Otherwise you're in for a treat. An intense, concentrated sweetness (jammy fruits, raisins) yet it's the balsamic vinegar note that stands out. The smoke is subtle by comparison. There's a hint of barbecued meat, seared bacon and some vanilla custard.
    • Taste
      There's chocolate, bonfire smoke, peat, leather and an assortment of spices. Yet this is where it falls apart a bit. Not to say the nose is highly integrated, but this certainly isn't. It's like a mixture of PX and peated single malt and the two don't play well.
    • Finish
      Pretty dry and somewhat ashy. Long.

    young but good.
