    Actually a pleasant port maturation. In terms of taste, not exactly my case, since everything is disappearing and there is no lasting impression.
    With the price for me no purchase option.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Nose seems closed at first, only really opens for me after spending more time in the glass. Then there are ripe berries with a nice sweetness. Light tobacco with a mustiness of an old attic. Aromas did not last long and he gradually flattened out. A bit of a shame because the first impression is positive.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Malty soft start. Add the red berries and the dry tobacco. A light oak spice also comes across pleasantly. Looks a bit thin and watery.
    • Finish
      81 81
      short finish, drier and slightly bitter after cocoa.

  5. LeChiffre scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Port wine barrel maturation is quite successful. Begins sweet and quite soft in the mouth. Over time and in the aftertaste, a beautiful, powerful peppery spice develops as a counterpoint. Overall, a good, if not too complex and exciting bottling.
    • Nose
      85 85
      sweet and fruity; intense aromas of red berries (strawberry, blackberry); Strawberry jam; some vanilla; Notes of pipe tobacco
    • Taste
      85 85
      silky and full-bodied; sweet; red fruits again; getting a little drier over time
    • Finish
      82 82
      slightly dry; sweet; the red berries remain; Caramel; in addition there is an increasingly peppery, spicy note; slightly bitter note remains

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Mortar sweetness.
    • Nose
      Summer fruits, strawberries and blackberries tempered with some toffee sweetness and cigar-box spiciness.
    • Taste
      Lush clean malt modified by fruity sweet Port and some spicy oak tones.
    • Finish
      Full and rich with lingering herbal spices and toffee sweetness.

  9. Moritz scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Nicely done, a good overall package. Price between 80 and 90 euros - but you get 15 years, 46%, not cool filtered. You have to judge PLV yourself, if you like Portweinnachreifungen - definitely good.
    • Nose
      Sweetish, fruity red berries. Quite light, vanilla notes are added. Subtle coffee aromas, pleasant hint of bitterness (maybe some oak?).
    • Taste
      Vollmunding with good start, intense sweetness, with the time getting drier. Caramel notes, however, are sweetly dominated. This fruity sweetness is clearly dominant.
    • Finish
      Sweet again, red berries, jammy. Strong spicy.

    *Sampled at Whisky Live Manila 2017

    livelier than the glencadam 17 portwood, this one has more complexity, plus the flavors of tomintoul are more suited for port
