Color
Pale gold
Nose

Incredibly sweet and estery. Lemon, candy floss, Sugar Puffs, honey, mint, touch of smoke and cocoa. The oak emerges with water but ends up slightly flat with time.

Taste

Lemon-fresh and sugary sweet all the way. Cinnamon. Just a dab of water is needed here.

Finish

Light but intense.

Comments

Just lacks some depth. All a bit nervy, but worth seeking out.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Old and dusty. Nail polish. Sawn oak. Apicots, peach but also Green apples. Whiff of smoke.

Taste

Very juicy. Orange marmelade. Strawberries. Rich oak. A bit astringent.

Finish

Spices of nutmeg and pepper. Cloves.

Comments

Very interesting whisky with a profile you don't come accross that much anymore.

Gin clear
Nose

Sherry organique fruité. Pêle-mêle, on a de l'humus, un peu de vinaigre de Xérès, des quetsches, des cerises, des framboises, de la sève de conifères, un boisé délicat et épicé (moutarde, girofle). Tout cela est enveloppé d'une très belle fumée, bien présente et qui semble offrir quelques notes maritimes (algues sèches).

Taste

Attaque sur le vinaigre, des épices (muscade). On part ensuite sur du bois, plutôt classe et pas amer. Tabac, sapin de Noël au 5 janvier, terreau, des fruits aussi (quetsches, pruneaux). Toujours cette jolie fumée, voluptueuse et aux discrets accents maritimes (rochers, sable de plage).

Finish

Longue, fumée, un peu salée, sherry PX.

Comments

Très beau nez, fin, classe et complexe. Le palais est un poil en retrait, de jolies saveurs mais un peu timides. Reste que c'est un très beau sherry.

Goûté blind.
