Expert Senior aphex Note
05 Aug 2017 7:38 pm
aphex gave this whisky 89 points

Nose : Dark fruits, red berries, raisins, gingerbread. With aeration, fresh vegetal and earthy notes, Pu-erh.

Mouth : Bitter attack. Oranges, chocolate, gingerbread. With time, less bitter and a nice sweetness appears with red berries notes.

Finish : Medium, oaky, orangey notes, drying.


The nose was great. I loved how the Pu-erh and sherry flavors mixed. The mouth was less interesting at first but the end of the glass was better, catching the nose. Overall a very good whisky.

Bishlouk
Connoisseur Bishlouk Tasting note
05 May 2014 8:15 pm
Bishlouk gave this whisky 86 points
Color
Tawny
Nose

Une fraîcheur d'herbe anisée (proche d'un virgin oak) me frappe en avant plan; enrobé d'un profil sherry standard (grain de café, cuir, épices, tabac, thé noir, pain d'épices, fruits rouges et noirs).

Taste

Bouche assez amère et qui pourrait sembler réduite; elle manque un peu de puissance.
Orange amère, tabac noir. Une bouche sherry assez standard.

Finish

Finale moyenne.
Des épices douces poivrées titillent le bout de la langue, tandis qu'une sécheresse boisée s'attaque aux joues.

Comments

Je dois bien avouer être un poil déçu. Après avoir attendu si longtemps pour le goûter, et à voir les notes sur WB je m'attendais à mieux.
C'est néanmoins un bon whisky bien fait, mais il y a moyen de trouver mieux, plus jeune, pour moins cher.
