  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Solid standard. Well suited for beginners. Mild, the aromas are still clear.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Spicy forest honey, heather, baked apple and ripe pears, bourbon vanilla. Clean and fresh.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Honey sweetness, baked apple, malt sweetness. Slightly sour notes (citrus). Vanilla and winter herbs. Very mild, reminiscent of a Lowlander.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Oak is noticeable, very subtle. Short to medium length.

  2. EILACOBESA scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Good and solid representative from the standard range of OA's and, in my opinion, a really good PLV for at least 15 years and 43%. A little restrained at the beginning, then aromas of dried apples and pears, forest honey, which seems somewhat diluted to me. Creamy mouthfeel, sweet vanilla, again the diluted forest honey, nothing to taste of apples and pears, rather subtle citrus fruit and light wood notes. Medium-long finish, slightly spicy and sweet, the often described subtle smoke can be guessed at for me, but maybe just a suggestion.

    very pleasant and solid standard whisky that goes very well with the warm season or warm temperatures. Nice summer whisky to say the least. Not overly complex but definitely recommended for the PLV.

    Similar to Winters Gold which is to be expected but it has a little more going on, with a nice spice note.
    This has better initial mouthfeel than WG but like that bottle not sweet.
    On the palate there is some white fruit , a touch of apricot and a little honey, this just feels a little more substantial than WG.
    Finish is pretty good , warm and spicy, good length.

  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Very mild and smooth whisky, with well-composed, delicate aromas that become more intense with every sip. Solid standard, is ideal for beginners or as a gift.
