"Love at first sight. The whiskey flows full into the nose and manages to appear creamy and elegant. There is not even a hint of alcohol. Winey cellar aromas, as I expect them from Couvreur. Spicy dates, dried plums In addition, oak dripping with wine. With a little time, raisins come through. Warm spices - some cinnamon, a hint of nutmeg. Old and wine-dampened leather. A hint of marzipan.
Water: The whiskey will be a little drier. A little more restrained. The oak is a little more prominent. It takes a moment for the oak to recede into the background. Some oranges and cloves are there now. "
"Much sweeter than expected. Sweet dates and raisins. Oak tingles pleasantly from the start. Sweet musty leather. Spices fried with brown sugar.
Water: sweet marzipan, aromatic pipe tobacco. "
Long, leathery with fermented fruit.
