  1. DistiLesha scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The fragrance is somewhat reminiscent of Talisker 10-18.
    The taste of a young and not the most interesting whisky, something like Talisker Storm.
    Not the Ardmore I'm used to feeling in my glass. On the whole, a solid and not outstanding whisky, but the Samaroli label should not be worn by him.

    • Nose
      Smoke, scorched dry leaves, a little bit of overripe tropical fruit, lemon zest, you can feel the new-make.
      You can let it breathe, the aroma is filled with freshness
    • Taste
      Fruity sweetness, lots of peat smoke, toasted bacon, scorched dry leaves, lemon juice and lemon zest. Hot spices predominate: hot chili pepper, ginger.
    • Finish
      Bitterness from the smoke that got into the nose and into the mouth. The smoke is rather from burning dry trees in summer cottages. Oak tannins and a little fruity sweetness are felt. Also continues to be felt hot spices such as pepper and ginger, which we felt on the palate.

    The color is golden, which indicates a bourbon barrel.

    The nose is moderately sweet, with delicate peaty notes, followed by citrus fruits, herbs, pastries, light notes of cheese a la brie, white fruits, light salt, light perfumery, as well as vanilla. The aroma is even, slightly closed, it unfolds slowly, but it works in the glass for a long time, does not disintegrate and does not simplify.

    The taste is delicately peaty, soft and even, with hints of herbs, pepper, light drying from oak, white fruits and pears.

    The aftertaste is long, smooth and soft, meets with spices, and then develops into pears, delicate peat, notes of oak, white fruits, herbs, light specks and drying.

    The whisky is very well balanced and balanced. He is level and a bit reserved. You need to sit and work with him in order to understand the main charm. Youth is not noticeable, there are no yeast and brew notes, which suggests that the barrel worked well, while maintaining the basic style of the distillery.
