    • Nose
      82 82
      Red wine, raisins, citrus, butterscotch and honey. This spirit will appeal to a variety of audiences.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Rather thick and syrupy. Caramel, honey and apricot preserves. Very smooth and balanced.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Relatively short, but the fruit notes are well balanced and stay with you.

    A delightful whisky that everyone, and especially beginners, will like

    • Nose
      Apples and cinnamon at first taste. Then come sweet aromas of apricot. All this with great sweetness as if you were smelling a fruit syrup. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Like for the nose, a great fruity sweetness coated with some spices. A really tasty mix of yellow fruits, even a little bit more fruit than with the nose. Vanilla but also honey making everything a little more creamy.
    • Finish
      A medium-length finish, very creamy. Some spices for a beautiful finish.

    A whisky that will delight everyone and especially beginners, and all for about 50 €.
    • Nose
      Apples and cinnamon are felt in the first place. Then come aromas of apricot. All this with great sweetness as if you were tasting a fruit syrup.
    • Taste
      Like the nose, a great fruity sweetness coated with spices. A tasty mix of yellow fruits, a little more fruit than the nose. Vanilla but also honey to make everything a little more creamy.
    • Finish
      A medium-length finish, very creamy. Some spices to finish in beauty.

    The Sauternes cask did his job and he did it well! A round and sweet whisky, soft even.

    An excellent candidate for the discovery of a whisky a bit original, if only for its quality / price ratio.

    A lot of wood, hence the drought, the bitterness and the spices. The contribution of Sauternes seems minimal ... A correct dram but that is not really made for tasting. The addition of a little water is really a plus despite a small 46%.
    • Nose
      A combination of fruity, spicy and woody notes that are difficult to differentiate, all in vanilla cream and coconut milk. All this is relatively melted and homogeneous but not very expressive. Dilution does not bring much: a little citrus in the volatile nose, and oak.
    • Taste
      The palate is round, oily but rather dry. Taste woody and a little spicy. Very little fruit. Banana with vanilla and whipped cream. The whole is still melted and indiscernable ... Vanilla makes a remarkable appearance and wraps everything. Much milder after dilution.
    • Finish
      Rather short and passing very quickly from a form of unexpected sweetness to drought already noted. Spicy. Light and pleasant bitterness all at the end. More fruity and sweet after dilution.

    a petite creature, almost a ladies whisky :-)
    • Nose
      Delicately fruity - pineapple! roasted almonds
    • Taste
      fruity-spicy, delicate oak, orange, cinnamon
    • Finish
      Medium long, bittersweet

    a lot better than the Nectar d`Or 2007 with no age statement

    "Great to see French casks that actually complement a whisky - so rare! An exercise in outrageously good sweet-dry balancing"

      Relatively long, sweet with a little spice.
