    There are worse things, but I do not need it. 67 points.
    • Nose
      Tart, slightly sweetish, floral and flat.
    • Taste
      Like nose, metallic and alcoholic.
    • Finish
      Not very long and without intense aromas.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    simple, but which passes in summer without concession a playful dram!

      a little vanilla, velvety pastry, malt is present, an emerging woody side, dried fruits
    • Finish
      medium, oily, on almond, hull, back grassy and spicy

    Very light, fruity, especially pear. Alcohol is not noticeable at all, looks like there is significantly less. I wouldn't even have guessed blindly on a whisky, but rather on a pear liqueur. Interesting in itself, but too light or too simple compared to other Couvreur bottlings.

  4. Gloin scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Tasted as part of a Michel Couvreur whisky tasting. As you can read below, I had tried this whisky before and found that you should not let it breathe for too long. The second tasting he liked me better, the Maggi note was indeed present, but not as strong and unpleasant as a year ago. Probably these were two different batches. I have adjusted my rating.
    • Nose
      Apple, fermented, grassy, ​​pear, cider, lovage, a development from slightly sour to sweet, some vanilla
    • Taste
      a lot of apple, calvados, sweet
    • Finish
      a little wood, vegetable broth, slightly bitter, sweet, medium long

    A sloping part: in the first impulse, very sweet and fruity, more like a grappa, because like a whisky. Quite tasty. However, if he stands awhile he develops intrusive to unpleasant maggi / fondor notes, especially in the nose, but also in the taste, which I have never found in such extreme form.
