    Copy & Paste by Sauternes brother: Tasty, strong, inexpensive (40-45 €), not too complex, not too tasty - fits.
    • Nose
      sweet, fruity, orange, tangerine, honey, a little cinnamon ... with water even fresher, more fruity, there is still some cherry
    • Taste
      Gingerbread / Dominoes fits quite well. So spicy pastries, fruit jelly, marzipan, dark chocolate.

    ● The amber dress.
    Tears solid and thick with large drops.

    ● The nose
    Gourmand. Cereals and almonds, Almond creams, dried fruits, grapes and whisky cream. Rum baba, tiramisu. Sugar and egg white. Easter egg with brandy.

    ● The mouth.
    Creamy. Sweet, egg white with sugar, almond whisky cream. Raisin, chocolate pear. Grape and mascarpone rum. Coffee Tiramisu.

    ● The final.
    Moderately long and vegetal. Licorice and cereal.

    A finish where the distillate is replaced for me, the Marsala dominates, the egg cream and the almond are too dominant. The expression is however quite successful.

    If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 86

  10. Lorion scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The nose could be gigantic, unfortunately it pushes down the alcohol that stings. The palate is classified as "good", but in no way surprised. The finish is inconspicuous, but pleasant.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Mandarin and almonds. Some alcohol. Intensive pistachios are here. And gradually oak comes through. Intense and spicy. Anise. Some nougat still and a sourish appeal. Wood.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Full and intense. Quite also tingling. Very cute. Mandarins gels. Fruit tea. Mild coffee in the dessert.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Medium. Orange peel. Decently bitter.
