After three evenings spent tasting this whiskey, it's time to give it an objective rating. I must say that for the first time I totally agree with the tasting notes on the back label (see photo). Not much to add except that it is a very tasty whiskey (with a hint of cocoa as a bonus) and, thank God, it has been aged in (fresh) DRY white wine barrels. A licorious white would have done him a disservice. In addition, I expected something rustic in the mouth because of the very artisanal side of the distillation process (equipment used, homemade yeast strains ...) and the composition of the mash (175kg of malted barley and 50kg of malted wheat). Well not at all. It's pretty clean and very tasty. Frankly a nice surprise coming from a product of 4 years maximum produced in a very confidential distillery. Indeed, I have never seen their whiskey (Roc'Elf) on sale in town when they are only 30km away. By the way, I'm afraid this official Roc'Elf bottling will be much less exciting due to the use of Coteaux du Layon barrels, an overly sweet white Loire.
On the other hand, LMDW really shines the spotlight on the distillery here with this bottling which in my opinion deserves a good 85.
