    His character is not ordinary. Very ok at the price
    • Nose
      clear smoke accompanied by vanilla sweetness, after the smoke come unripe fruits, simple, young yet quite balanced
    • Taste
      fresh smoke with fruity sweetness, pear, sour apple
    • Finish
      beautiful interplay of smoky notes with the oak aroma, in the mouth remains leather and delicate bitterness

  6. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Mainly vanilla and wonderfully delicious Ardmore smoke, unruffled and delicious without intrusive youth
    • Nose
      immediately vanilla, a little orange and very subtle smoke, sweet, all very mild, butter, milk chocolate
    • Taste
      first sweetness, then smoke and getting stronger, warming, oily and buttery
    • Finish
      with smoke and vanilla, medium length, little oak, some leather and floral towards the end

  7. malthead-sven scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    PLV unbeatable, plus a fancy bottle, still a little teen but surprisingly good
    • Nose
      Vanilla, then peat smoke, young, unripe pears, later milk chocolate
    • Taste
      strong onset, spicy then smoke again, with water silky and sweeter
    • Finish
      rather short but stormy, in the back some oak

    Nose: Leather and earthy peat. Then more leather. Some iodine. Man…can’t get over the ‘saddle-like’ leather notes. Very ‘dry’ smelling, if that makes any sort of sense. Light raw tobacco. There are some fruit notes, to be sure, but rather generic and typical of what you’d find in one of the ‘Glen’ distilleries. Nothing unique. There’s a vague hint of salmon with lemon and capers. Some caramel. And…a bit of a floral note. Not tooooo far off a Springbank, really. Think this would age well, but as it stands…middling at best.

    Palate: That salmon note carries here. Wish it hadn’t, to be honest. Some earthy peat notes and leather too. Smoke and tannic fruits. Disappointing.

    Very good whisky; crafty, 46% abv (water is a must) non chill filtered.
    Not for the beginner. Will surprise everyone.
    • Nose
      No water: light smoke. Butter. Honey sweet. Bitter spices.
      With water: much more sweet, of flowery heather. Light smoke in the background.
    • Taste
      Smoke arrival. Stays in the development, just above the tongue. Barbecue smells.
    • Finish
      Long, dry finish.
