    Serge

    Colour: dark mahogany. Nose: much less winey, and much more chocolaty at first nosing. It remains a little flat and sort of mat during a few seconds, before the sherry starts to wake up (or is it my nose?) A very subtle sherry at that, with no ‘sweet’n’sour’ notes at all. Peony, lilac… and always lots of chocolate. Nice notes of praline, whisky fudge (sure, sure…) Italian coffee… Feint hints of Worcester sauce. Really beautiful and, again, no lumpiness at all. Mouth: oh, so much better at first sip! Much creamier, sweeter and smoother, even if again, there’s lots of sherry in there. Lots of caramel (somewhat in the Bailey’s style – sorry Luc), chocolate, burnt praline, candy sugar… Lots of balsamic vinegar as well, and even black truffle! (And God knows how much I love truffles). Hints of Grand-Marnier (but the Cuvée du Centenaire) and even Bénédictine, yellow Chartreuse, Jägermeister. Okay, perhaps it gets a little too drying after a while, as the tannins start to ‘stick the tongue to the palate’, as we say. The finish is very long, that is, mainly on some great notes of blackcurrant liqueur. A cute little sherry monster, this one! 90 points.

    Amazing whisky! A real sherry monster!  
    • Nose
      Here’s fudge, chocolate, baked raisins, dark chocolate liqueur, orange liqueur (Cointreau) and Christmas syrup candy (it’s very Swedish, but it’s right there). But here’s a slight more unusual side as well, wood glue and sulphur. Really well-balanced, big, but gentle. 
    • Taste
      Dry, tannins, raisins, balanced. It’s very big, very much all over the place, but in the best way possible.
    • Finish
      The finish begins were the mouth ended, but with gentle orange liqueur notes, fudge. It’s long and it fades beautifully.

    Super nose but the taste does not follow........at all!
    For me there is even an off note in the taste.
