  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Savagnin yellow wine for a 10 years of 5 different casks
    • Nose
      white macvin sensation
      leaven and brioche taste
      fresh walnut, some vanilla and lemon zest
      Pumpkin soup sensation!
    • Taste
      yeast, quince with their mold on it
      the characteristic yellow wine, almost bitter, a little acid and a sweet return in the end it becomes sweet in the mouth.
      the nut again that it is almost necessary to chew!
    • Finish
      long, busy, on the wine, a bit bitter
      on the pumpkin
      on yeast, singular
      final that lasts!

  2. nhuber scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Single malt. Special wine from Jura named savagnin. Bacteria make special flavor, the vale protects the wine and gives some yeasts to the whisky. Either love it or hate it. Vin jaune can last very long in the bottle, recently sold some vin jaune from 15th century.

    Very nice unusual nose, Very dry in the mouth, unusual taste, definitely love or hate it whisky. Made out of 5 different casks, some Matured in dry cellar while others were Matured in Humid cellar. Different cellar results in different alcohol strength, resulted in strength between 30% and 55% then mixed together. Liked it, unusual but something interesting and special. 85/86p

    of the JV and notes:
    Nose: In a first place the influence of Savagnin makes you feel with notes oxidation, nuts. Then on citrus fruits and quince.
    Palate: First round, warm and nervous.
    Final: Very complex, evolving between bitterness and acidity
