Smoother and more elegant than the Overaged vintages with the otherwise light, but quite special-looking smoke component. The typical, slightly musty cellar note that is typical of Couvreur, which I otherwise really like, is missing here. No sulfur is perceptible here either.
Overall, a nice and exciting experiment. More often! I just wish there would be more often, or always alternating, a peated and unpeated version, which in the future could be left standing next to each other in the closet and always bought later.
Very nice, nutty and slightly tart-sour sherry note, of course less heavy than with Blossoming, but still very powerful and elegant at the same time. Orange, cherry, chocolate, nice sherry flavor - reminds me a bit of the house style of Glenfarclas.
Even more pleasing and sweeter at hand temperature with strawberries and ripe, fresh plums. To put in.
Strong and voluminous. As usual, no thinning is necessary. The alcohol is very well integrated and in this respect it is hard to believe that we are dealing with a proud 52%. Dark red grape, blackberry, cherry, raspberry, spicy European oak, red pepper, light lemon, light chocolate with a little salt.
Medium length. Walnuts, cherries and oranges remain in the mouth and throat. In addition, nice oak seasoning with raspberry and honey.
