  2. NamorX68 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    good malt .. is he better than the 15 year old Mortlach from G & M? Not better but not worse..other. Less smoke and less sherry. For more seasoning and barrel. As for the PLV, the 15-year-old, however, the nose ahead.
    • Nose
      Seasoning, hay, grain, oak then fruit .. apple, some chocolate and quite a bit away smoke
    • Taste
      Seasoning, oak, sweet, slightly bitter, chocolate, maybe some smoke.
    • Finish
      medium length, dry, floral

  5. Feusi scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Apple blossoms and ripe pears on sweet barley. Malty sweet with herbs and flowers, very pleasant woody notes fill the mouth. Balanced and wonderfully complex. In the long finish remain dried fruits and herbs on the palate, a classic.

  6. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Sweet and fruity nose with plenty of complexity. Full and rich on the palate with a long, warming finish. A really good straightforward, well-balanced malt.

  8. Sonett scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Apples, canned pears in syrup,Herbs, Vanilla and a hint of wood (oak)
    • Taste
      Enters soft and sweet with Sherry and pears, Spices increases softly but only as a contribution to the taste, not a takeover. Some soft tones of oak 
    • Finish
      Medium long with fading spices turning to fresh fruit sweetness
