  1. nallacam scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    The first nose convinced me, but the more I tried it, the less I liked it.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, malty freshness, vanilla, yellow fruits and a trace of smoke, all spicy!
    • Nose
      malt, fresh, yellow-orange fruit, spices in number and a return of vanilla!
      a little wood as dry.
    • Taste
      alcohol plus strong spices plus astringency, which remove all the attraction of the nose concerning the fruits.
      we do not feel much.

    Fresh and fruity with a great oak finish.
    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity with sweet and sour apples, lime and a little honey.
    • Taste
      Malty, ever stronger spiciness, oak and again the apples.
    • Finish
      First fruity, then a strong flavor. Is getting drier, the oak remains on the palate.

  6. mike_g scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    At first cautious, light oak, spiciness, sherry, malt, alcohol well integrated.

    Sherry, strong oak and spice, even reminiscent of light smokiness. Roasted coffee beans, liquorice, a little vanilla,

    Especially spice, oak, a little bitter, coffee, dry

    All in all a positive surprise. Much better than expected. The bottle is from 2012 and the cork was not 100% leakproof according to the fill level. So he was breathing well. It does him good :) Overall, however, somewhat one-dimensional due to the consistently dominant oak.

    Blind tasting.

    Color: Chestnut / Oloroso sherry. Nice, fine smoke in the nose. But what kind? In addition, neat red fruits. Cherries and strawberries. I can not classify the smoke, maybe it's a port finish, the Ardmore? However, only on the basis of red fruits ... soft in the mouth, then dry, gentle smoke, vanilla, oranges, strawberries. Medium-length finish. Milk coffee, faint smoke, musty tree bark.

    I really like MacDonald well, tasty, not very deep, but intense. He saw at least one sherry barrel from the inside. Maybe also Port. However, I have no idea what distillery I should pack the good, if it is not the Ardmore Port Wood.

    • Nose
      81 81
      Sweet, floral, non-spirituous. Perfumery shades (rose water). Lollipops. Fresh vegetables (sweet carrots, beets). Watercolor paint. 21
    • Taste
      78 78
      Slightly hot. Medium, moderately sweet. At the same time, slightly salty. Plain. 19
    • Finish
      80 80
      From short to medium, pleasant, warming, but also simple. 20

      Balance: 20. Tidy, tasty, without any unpleasant notes, although uncomplicated. Reminds of a good blend. Although someone, perhaps, will call it faceless.

    • Nose
      Nez: Orange. Épices. Frais. Se montre par moment un peu céréalier. Orange sanguine. Une goutte d'eau le rend carrément costal, avec du gingembre.
    • Taste
      Bouche: Léger en bouche, doux. Le sherry est bien présent et tout à fait crémeux. Ensuite vient un peu de bois. Se poursuit sur des notes d'orange. Ne décolle pas vraiment, montre sa jeunesse. Pointe d'amande vanillée, que fait encore re-sortir l'eau.
    • Finish
      Finale: Légère sécheresse. Reste doux. Moyenne longueur. Un whisky sans réel défaut, mais qui reste dans les limites d'un jeune finish. L'eau rend peut-être la finale plus sèche et un peu cartonneuse.

  10. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is a sweet with fruits, salt, oak and spicy notes. The palate is a sweet and spicy with fruits notes. The finish is a middle, sweet, spicy and dusty. It’s a good whisky for daily drinking.
