  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    new Fleeting declination of 10 years!
    After the red, white and ruby ​​port, here is the Media Cream.
    • Nose
      malty sweetness, crushed nuts, creamy and viscous!
      sweet sherry, liquoreux, aerial, imposing mold, fruits cooked on grapes, apple, candied orange
      cocoa and wood in return
    • Taste
      Feel like an old maderised wine, fine spices to dissect the scents, now sherry with mushrooms, cooked black cherries, orange cooked again and with its zest!
      malt, nuts, crushed dry hazelnuts,
      leather and wood soaked
      return of cooked wine, dust, mildew
    • Finish
      long enough, but with scents that turn on sherry, well-cooked fruits and walls, on the malty velouté, on the nut, the mold, in short, a very good time for a .... 10 years!

    A great and balanced malt. The interplay of the flavors is really fun, sweet and creamy components zealous with harsh wood tones and a herbal touch to the bet. While I enjoy this malt and close my eyes, I almost feel like Michel Couvreur vaulted cellar. A great filling which whets your appetite for more!

    • Nose
      Rich amber shines in the glass, wonderful sherry aromas are palpable from afar. Creamy sherry flavors combine right from the beginning with a scent of moldy cellar and loamy soil. Röstaromen play with the dried berries and grapes, slightly sour fruit flavors dissolve, velvety vineyard peach comes out powerfully. In the background is a subtly musty and musty base note while in the foreground peaches, apricots and juicy oranges spread their beguiling aroma. Meadow herbs and an old spice mixture show up, but let the ripe fruits take precedence again. The combination of old cellar, herbs and dried fruits is impressive and slowly stimulates salivation. Hazelnuts and almonds reveal, hints of spicy oak suggest a little burnt wood or minimal smoke. Again come slightly musty flavors to light, I really feel like the first sip!
    • Taste
      Creamy and sweet, the first sip flows over the tongue. From the sweet components light bitter substances dissolve, but the mouthfeel remains creamy and sweet. Subtle pungency develops, gradually a pinch of white pepper sticks between tongue and palate, the salivation is stimulated more and more. Nuances of leather and espresso come to the fore, sweet raisins float in the saliva. At the second sip, too, this creamy sweetness first appears before the sharpness intensifies on the second sip on the palate. Dark oranges and apricots rest on the tongue, a cloud of plump warmth runs through the palate. At the moment the espresso becomes more dominant, a bit of hazelnut chocolate melts in the mouth. Gradually, the leather note also shows its dominant side. I imagine making a sweet and dried tobacco leaf. Tart and sweet components flash in the interplay, from the initial creaminess become harsh and spicy wood tones.
    • Finish
      Sweet and creamy dried fruit flavors stick to the palate, tart leather and wood flavors end in a cozy warmth. A subtle basic sharpness sticks to the tongue, milk chocolate melts in creamy espresso. Opulent reflects a variety of different flavors again, chopped hazelnuts are roasted in a pan. Sweet and bitter components play together one last time, the mouthfeel remains amazingly creamy. With an intense herbal note in combination with hazelnuts, the aftertaste sounds slow.

  3. Lorion scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    There are two situations for this whisky. First, he can serve as (more expensive) whisky by the way, since he is an absolute flatterer. Secondly, it offers just a little concentration a finesse not to be despised. When I only tasted it briefly and incidentally, I threatened to be disappointed. However, a detailed employment turns out to be a whisky, which really inspires me. 90 points from initial to superficial assessment.

      Ahhh .. Couvreur pours into his nose. Unmistakable. It is vinous and musty-sweet. Gently. Hazelnuts are there too. Shriveled cherry. That's the way it stays. Almost a bit restrained. Very pleasant, but a bit shy. Time and warmth make the nose more kräutriger, but not very. It stays creamy and flattering. Trolli gummy bears are now coming out and displace the herbs. Sweet and fruity. Then everything settles again and nothing stands out anymore. The nose requires concentration, otherwise it could seem unimpressive. Everything is still there, but closely interwoven to a sweet-nutty-fruity-creamy pleasure.

      Here's the whisky right there. A creamy sweetness slides into the mouth and fills it out. Juicy and soft, but intense and invigorating. An interesting interplay. The sweetness comes back and a slightly drier fruitiness prevails, bromides and blueberries. Leather. With the swallowing, some coffee sets in and provides for a spicy rejuvenation, but without endangering the soft and supple character. Tart nuances merely indicate what floats behind the suppleness.

      For a long time remains the fading sweetness, long the developing dryness. A light, leathery fur remains and mild milk coffee.

    Creamy Couvreur, then sweet Madeirised wine, dust, mildew, and sensation of finishes in yellow wine!
