  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    simple, but the feeling of old wood begins in the final!
    • Nose
      woody, spicy, a little cinnamon between, then succinct orange fruits grease sherry occurs in the end.
    • Taste
      wood again, a little chips, honey, a little vanilla, return of alcohol despite the low degree!
    • Finish
      medium, simple on the same aromas, with some lemon honey and more!

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nose: oranges, dusty oak, tobacco, leather, apples, peaches
    Taste: soft, round, sweet, wood - dry oak like sawdust, mint, vanilla, the oranges are rather hidden behind the oak, nice balance, seems ripe, very yummy, but could tolerate a little more alcohol, only on the 2nd. and 3. sip intensively

  3. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I dare to try Couvreurs from time to time, but so far no one really wanted to please me, but this one does exactly that, it is very pleasing.
    • Nose
      A set sherry blows directly towards you, slightly musty, slightly acidic of orange, leathery, some oak, a few nuts, rather dry than sweet, alcohol is well integrated, overall also quite fresh, after the first sip comes a touch of lovage
    • Taste
      creamy, sherry, intense, raisins, some wood, especially when starting, musty and sedentary here too, some salt, here it is more tangerines than oranges, therefore a little sweeter, you can feel at the mouth that it is only drinking strength, but he fills the whole mouth in terms of taste
    • Finish
      The mandarins dominate at the back, there is a slight dryness of the chewed fruit bowl, but a slight sweetness, like the liquid in canned mandarins, is pleasant, but not too long

    The 52% overaged is much fuller, more complex and with more sweetness and oak.
    • Nose
      Full and fruity, sweet and dark dried fruits, sherry, spicy, oak, oranges
    • Taste
      Spicy, sweet, sherry, fruity, oak
    • Finish
      Oak, bittersweet and slightly dry
