  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Each sip was more pleasant than the last! Enthusiasm: Nose: 4/5 Palate: 4/5 Final: 4/5 Whisky n ° 1760
    • Nose
      Delicate, light and deep. Red wine, juicy red fruits. Wood, chocolate. New dust and new wood are added to the rest. Some late exotic fruits.
    • Taste
      Smooth attack. At first almost slim, it is creamy but remains very fluid. Spices pull hard towards bitterness. Less from the 2nd sip, offset by the vinous notes that round the whole.
    • Finish
      Final bitter and spicy.

    On the nose, the deluge of dust of old grimoire, it smells of mildew, dust, then appear macerated fruit, marker sherry important!
    return of cherries in jars, at the moment when we remove the moldy film!
    trace of dark chocolate to finish!
    • Nose
      sherry, sodden wood, creamy caramel, velvety, vanilla, sweet spices and dust!
      then fresh with herbaceous menthol.
    • Taste
      Oh, sherry so strong in the nose is diluted almost too easily with the fine spices, nuts, cocoa, it's almost too sweet on the palate, but the return leads to a feeling of old blend extra!
    • Finish
      long, taking with stones, and menthol.

    Color: Mahogany
    • Nose
      93 93
      Red fruits, old leather, lavender, liquorice, touch of wood. Really fresh nose for an old whisky.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Oily, more sherried than the nose let expect, wood at first, then spices, leather, dried fruits
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium long, shorter than what I expected, on liquorice and menthol cigarettes. Not that I smoked that.

    A great old-style copy. Long live the Paxarette!
    • Nose
      A concentrate of sherry, liquorice, raisins and thickened plum compote, fully ripe blueberries
    • Taste
      Sherry grenade old style, red fruits, spicy very balanced woodiness, it remains a Nussigkeit on the tongue, dark chocolate
    • Finish
      Fruity sherry sweetness, gets very dry - in the end pushes strong wood and the tannins are unmistakable

    Very good and sweet.
    Sherry classic but all in all classic.
    • Nose
      Sherry classic, woody.
      Strawberry, cherry.
      Chocolate wood. Reason of Corinth.
      Leather, light camphor.
    • Taste
      In the mouth sweet, round and a little watery.
      On the way and chocolate above all.
      Leather then, and waxed.
      Dried fruits. Walnuts, hazelnuts.
    • Finish
      Finale on dried fruits, leather and wood.
