Whisky Reviews for Michel Couvreur Single PX Cask

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.83 points

  1. Lorion scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A masterpiece. Grandios with only one weakness - with time (and water), the whisky is already very kräutrig. I do not need that every day. Therefore, there is a point deduction. And that puts him at 92 points.
    • Nose
      93 93
      a sweet and sour PX nose. Impeccable Couvreur! Grapes and Piedmont cherries. Modrig, leathery must. Sweet marzipan. Heavy wine flavors. Wine-soaked wood. A touch of lovage. Some honey. Fig syrup. A few apples are still there. With some time, the oak comes through stronger. A mild nutmeg. The oak manages to be aromatic and intense without being stubborn or disturbing. Cranberries. Fresh rosemary comes in again after some time, but only in the background. Milk chocolate.

      Water: In fact, the nose is even more flattering, at least initially. Then she becomes much more kräutriger. Herbal tea.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Sweet and juicy. Cherry and wood. It is getting drier quickly. Ledgrig. Chunky chocolate, old wood. Fermented fruit. Pretty intense. The sweetness remains, but the almost dusty character is stronger. The tongue is occupied. After swallowing, a sticky, sticky chocolate remains in the mouth, slowly melting.

      Water: Here, water does not change much, the wood is a bit more dominant and the herbs are also here neat.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long. Intensive. Fruity, sweet and leathery.
