    Makes you want to more. The price is ... but it takes some getting used to, as Couvreur is at least as creative as the products.
    • Nose
      Very intense in the nose. Strong wine notes, also alcohol can be heard, which I feel pleasant considering the drinking strength. Could be a subtle sherrylagerung. Pleasantly sweet and fruity, caramelized fruit, apple slices and grapes, slightly liquorice in the background. Very well balanced.
    • Taste
      Dark honey is my first association. Then very strong notes of wine and various spices, which I, however, since they seem rather restrained, need a moment to name them. Cloves or allspice, some cardamom, a very light sweet spiciness, which I most likely associate with nutmeg. The fruity sweetness is complemented by wood notes.18 years barrel storage left their mark. MET, that is, honey from the barrique is the taste.
    • Finish
      Very long and again the honey-fruity mead association.

    The nose is dominated by a spicy, floral yeast clot.
    The first impression in the mouth is very soft and oily, almost watery.
    However, this idea evaporates quite quickly, due to the wonderful harmony of this malts. Very balanced and complex with a variety of flavors across the herb and sherry garden ;-)
