Monsieur Dram
Expert Senior Monsieur Dram Tasting note

Monsieur Dram gave this whisky 77 points
Color
Amber
Nose

un profil complètement différent du « Original ». On est ici sur des notes plus lourdes, plus sucrées. On a toujours cette sensation de sentir un chien après la pluie mais ce whiskey semble néanmoins plus complexe. On sent vraiment l’influence du fût de Sherry : orange, noix, bois pourri. Le caramel est parfaitement perceptible. Et puis, on a quelques notes de soufre, dissimulées derrière ce côté sucré pas très engageant. Les fruits : banane, abricot, pêche, cerises. Une petite fraîcheur avec la menthe. C’est plus doux que la version « original ».

Taste

c’est plus puissant que l' »Original ». Des notes de noix, de bois, de café et de caramel. Les notes boisées font de l’ombre aux notes fruitées. Néanmoins, c’est beaucoup plus rond que l' »Original ». On distingue des notes de pain grillé également.

Finish

d’une longueur correcte, malgré la réduction. Pas désagréable.

Comments

Un whisky plus aromatique que la version original. Une entrée de gamme également correcte, mais qui manque de complexité pour être vraiment intéressante. Il n'en reste pas moins divertissant.

Pépé
Expert Junior Pépé Tasting note

Pépé gave this whisky 78 points
Color
Burnished
Nose

Notes de grain immédiatement au nez. On a du chocolat au lait, une touche de crème, quelques légers fruits -abricots et pêches- puis de la vanille-coco. Une touche de menthol et des traces de noix et d'amandes. Personne dans le lot n'est franchement renversant.

Taste

La texture est presque aqueuse, le chocolat au lait toujours en attaque, des noix et du caramel. Le développement est particulièrement court ! Par contre l'alcool nous laisse relativement peinard.

Finish

Court.  Caramelo-vanillé.

Comments

Un nez mignon bien que seulement légèrement expressif, le reste pêche trop pour passer le tout au delà des 80. Bouche inoffensive et très simple, finale inexistante.
