  1. Seb.Whisky scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This whisky from Alsace has experienced a first maturation in barrels of wine, Burgundy and Sauternes. The finish will go through four casks of cherries in the brandy, a typical production of the house Miclo. Once again, our Alsatian friends succeed with a daring bet, with an atypical product and therefore totally balanced. So it will please or displease according to everyone's expectations, but I do not find him as on previous versions any defect. A whisky that keeps the standard criteria of a whisky, associated with the regional tradition and that works, I say yes.
    • Nose
      Nose: Under the air of youth, it offers a beautiful wealth of sweet malt, red and dry fruits, such as cranberry, cherry inevitably, but also cinnamon. Yes, there is still this grainy and sweet sensation that we find in the raisin. I think that on the nose Sauternes barrels dominate the whole. The opening will offer I also find chocolate.
    • Taste
      Palate: Enveloping and silky, with a power just up to expectations, offering an intense but controlled experience of this whisky. Then the finish will totally indulge our taste buds. For those who have already tasted the liqueur that their parents or grandparents prepared with the cherries of the garden, it is a madeleine of Proust. There is also a contribution of drier wood, tannins, spices, but really enough to complement a table already rich in color and fruit. Yes besides the cherry we will find a set of red fruits rather creamy.
    • Finish
      Finish: Dry, woody, with always these notes of red fruits and cinnamon. The fruity aspect will become more complex, offering prunes and this stewed texture, dried apricots, macerated cherry.

    It is a strange thing. You don't notice much of the cherry. The smell spoiled my fun. The rest was edible but not worth mentioning.
    • Nose
      The smell almost prevented me from trying it at all: very musty and somehow lazy. The strange thing was that he smelled appealing from the sample bottle at first, but not at all from the glass.
    • Taste
      I did dare and it tastes a lot better than it smells, but that's not an art. Instead of cherry, it shows notes typical of sherry.
    • Finish
      Not spectacular.

    declination with a real cherry !!
    • Nose
      greedy, fruity, malty
      fruit on cherries in the brandy of our mothers, a little Alsatian apricot from Uberach, it's very sweet
      a little dark chocolate and wood in return
    • Taste
      a little bitterness, a little sulfur,
      then fruits in piles, in baskets, on the black and ripe fruits
      the spices are rather sweet, a bit of cinnamon, a little Christmas bread
      the almond shell appears, then spicy spices arise, stay on the edge of the tongue and the bitterness comes back!
    • Finish
      on the brandy, with its cherries, actually, peppery spices, malt, woody and almond core for a pleasantly long finish!

    • Nose
      Cereal youth put forward, surrounded by roundness. The more it opens, the more it is the roundness that takes the step. Festival of red fruits. In a rather powerful style at the Uberach.
    • Taste
      Full, generous, marked by cherry. A little bit of sulfur.
    • Finish
      End-to-end coherent, without incredible development nor exceptional complexity either.

      Nose 4/5
      Mouth and finish 3/5
