Whisky Reviews for Rumours 15-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    In contrast to Rumors - Chapter 2 30yo (WB189257), there are no tips or hints from Uncharted Whisky about possible distilleries here.

    Nevertheless, the official tasting notes speak a very clear language, so that one can type in the direction of Ardbeg with a clear conscience.
    • Nose
      Quite a light and delicate first impression. Fresh sweet cheesecake greets me first. With a little time, it builds up more pressure, shows harsher tones with herbs and aromatic peat smoke.
    • Taste
      Powerful start on the tongue with lots of fruity and sweet aromas at the beginning. The smoke then settles more clearly on the palate and remains pleasantly dry.
    • Finish
      Warming at first briefly fruity before only the smoke remains.

    Tasting Notes from Uncharted Whisky:

    Nose
    A light and delicate nose with citrus fruit, pineapple, spice, potpurri and a deep, gentle smoldering smoke.

    Palate
    A burst of sweet tropical fruits, papaya, pineapple and pineapple is followed by rich sweet smoke.

    Finish
    A fragrant and delicate smoke lingers in the mouth long out lasting the sweetness tropical fruit with soft pepper and spice smouldering long after the dram has gone.

    Not too difficult to work out what Distillery this is ;)
