    • Nose
      Fresh and well fruity initially. Vegetal (tea thyme-lemon), it makes me think of some Benrinnes. Simple and direct.
      Its expressiveness and fruity are lost along the way, too bad!
    • Taste
      Moist and light, precise and pointed. Accessible and aromatic, it is spicy with vegetal notes from end to end.
    • Finish
      Creamy and sparkling.

      When your expectations are zero on a whisky, you sometimes have very good surprises! I have rarely been seduced by Couvreur, I had a great time.

      Nose 3/5
      Mouth and final 4/5

  9. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A light, clean and fresh single malt with a delicate balance of tropical
    fruit, creamy vanilla and oak spice. Certainly not the best MC whisky
    I've tried so far but a
    well-made and attractive all day dram.

    I thank Frank Jerger from Whisky for Life for the sample!

    • Nose
      Fresh and clean on the nose with a decent floral note. Quite fruity with
      lemons, apples and pineapple. Sweet vanilla and a touch of sourness
      followed by spiced oak in the
    • Taste
      Sweet and creamy on the palate with vanilla, apricots and pineapple.
      This is complemented by a pleasant warming and almost prickling
      spiciness of oak, white pepper and
      allspice. Slightly dry notes of oak towards the finish. Mouth
      coating and nicely rounded.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and lovely warming with white pepper and subtle oak. Becomes slightly bitter and tannic on the tail.
      With water: Very fresh and floral on the nose when a
      few drops of water are added. The lovely fruitiness remains while
      vanilla is slightly tamed. Less sweet on the palate with a
      significantly enhanced spiciness of oak, pepper and allspice. Very
      prickling and warming with creamy vanilla towards the finish. The finish
      is a bit shorter with lingering notes of creamy fruit
      and vanilla, followed by dry oak on the tail.

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Nose:- Intriguing soft floral, spearmint and sour fruits. Touch of sweetness. Fresh.

    Palate:- Crisp and raw. Abundant of pungent wood and prickly mouthfeel. Mineral and dash of bitter salt at the back. Tannin.

    Finish:- Evolving, citric soda attack, throat drying. Then grassy spiciness come alive and lingering. Medium length.

    Simplicity and unpretentious.
