  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    vanilla and velvety nose with a creamy sensation, spices arrive fairly quickly, the fruits are on the cooked peach
    the palate is well spiced, a bit grassy, a little smoky, a lot caramelized and the vanilla that comes out with a little white chocolate, the wood is frank.
    The finish is average, spices, caramel, grassy without more!

    a good whisky, but without much particularity in view of its arrival in large lay.

    whiskyfun.com by sergeChichibu 6 yo ‘Paris Edition 2019’ (50.3%, OB, Japan, 1757 bottles) Five stars
    A blend of seven bourbon casks with just a bit of mizunara (probably unnecessary) from two barrelheads. It was instant love when I first tried it at WL Paris, which was why I included this baby within top 3 during the ‘masterclass’ (again, hate that word) that we did there with Dave Broom. Colour: gold. Nose: totally on warm sawdust, vanilla, brioche, fresh croissants, all kinds of fresh breads, just a little nutmeg from the oak, some mashed potatoes, and just a wee spoonful of mashed Jerusalem artichokes. With water: IPA, pumpkin velouté, vanilla, Gueuze… Mouth (neat): mirroring the nose, descriptor for descriptor. Bread, banana, croissants, vanilla, mashed roots, warm butter, crème dessert (we have Mont-Blanc here)… With water: gets brighter and spicier, all for the better. Lemons and curry, brown bread, more mashed roots (celeriac, turnips, potatoes, carrots) with a little honey and sweet ale. Finish: medium, with some nutmeg as the signature. Comments: you gotta love very bready whiskies. If you do, try to get this one (while avoiding the nasty flippers).
    SGP:551 - 90 points.

    Found the 2018 version a little better. This is something "any", but that is whining on a very high level.

    Very good but a little closed nose.
    I preferred the 2018 edition
    • Nose
      Soft nose on bourbon, wood, chocolate, light smoke. Light fruits. Not so open.
    • Taste
      On the palate lemon, caramel, toffee, lemon, peach, mandarin, wood, cherry, currant, ginger.
      Pretty strong in the mouth. But very good.
    • Finish
      Long finish on fruit, currant, light peat and wood, chocolate.
