  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Well, he does not make me nervous. In addition, always a false note, which may be reminiscent of rubber.
    • Nose
      Forest honey, fermented grapes, pepper and occasionally subtle smoke.
    • Taste
      Mon Cheri, walnut, (ver) burnt almonds, again the pepper.
    • Finish
      Some sherry fruit and dark chocolate.

  3. rottendon scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I might like that, well, he could be a bit stronger, but he's definitely interesting and different than expected. Sweet stuff, I'll give it to you. Notes from an online chat tasting.
    • Nose
      Some smoke and a slightly acidic fruit note at the beginning, the whole backed with vanilla. Gentle aromas. After some time, I can understand both old wood and brandy, but in a positive way. Overall, fuller, fuller and more interesting. Tobacco and pickled plum, I think both are also quite appropriate. The fresh fruity is completely gone, but now I have some herbs and a hint of menthol. When warming a lot of plum jam with star anise and liqueur.
    • Taste
      Slightly thin, which takes a few seconds in the mouth, then it is quite dry with tobacco, herbs and some beet syrup as a contrast. A hint of oak to the rear. Also here, apparently, some smoke.
    • Finish
      Not even so short, warms up significantly, then at first is the very restrained sweetness to make room for rotting wood and tobacco again. The burden, which remains in the mouth at the end and slightly corky ashy, reminds again of smoke.

  4. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I like it, stuffy stuff, apparently gotten good sherry keg and the smoky little corner fits in well. With ~ 40 € no bargain for NAS, but taste justified.
    • Nose
      Dusty, dead wood, almost a bit smoky (especially at the beginning, is weak), plus vanilla, schrumpliger red apple, caramel, also has something of brandy ... is then softer, rounder, a bit earthy
    • Taste
      quite strong, full-bodied, dark chocolate, wood, spicy (in the direction of pepper / nutmeg, a bit spicy), warm, earthy, mossy, and here too I form some sweetish smoke
    • Finish
      medium, the wood and the spices sound, coffee and a hint of licorice

  5. Koalafant scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Great all-rounder for sherry barrel friends with great value for money.
    • Nose
      Round it mild with notes of chocolate, ripe dark fruits and nutmeg
    • Taste
      At first pleasantly mild and unobtrusive, later a bit stronger with hints of chocolate and chai spice
    • Finish
      medium and mild

  6. schengel10 scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    A neat, pleasant Highland malt; unfortunately a bit too expensive and not always available;
    • Nose
      fruity (juicy pear), some sherry, dates, caramel, oak;
    • Taste
      soft onset, fine spiciness (ginger, oak), sherry, spices, getting dry, dark chocolate;
    • Finish
      quite short, nutty finish; fine spice sounds;

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful mineral Sherrynase, but then relatively bitter-spicy with a hint of peat smoke. Unusual, but not wrong.

  10. dRambo scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I was pleasantly surprised - I think PLV is pretty good - charming with nice strong sherry fruit influences - still no juice paint - has something
    • Nose
      85 85
      fragrant orange-sherry fruity with a clear coconut note and wax - quite tasty and round with a soft smoke - unfortunately the nose does not last long
    • Taste
      83 83
      Raisins, oranges, very spicy light oak - pepper and mint - wild honey - rum-nut-nut-chocolate
    • Finish
      83 83
      chocolaty, tobacco, fresh with herbaceous oak - slightly soapy impression rather eco mothballs with lavender - not unbelievable - simply special
