  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Decent malt for its age. It's sweet and spicy. The smoke is very subdued and more subtle than I know from Ardmore.

  3. LeChiffre scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    He surprised me positively, had expected less. You can tell that it is relatively young, but the flavors it offers are harmonious and quite tasty. As an Ardmore I would never have recognized him, I don't really notice smoke.
