    Quite interesting!
    • Nose
      A very pleasant nose ... very rich; waxed wood, encaustic for the nobility. Then caramel, praline, cherry, raspberry for fruity-sweet delicacy. Then coffee, nuts, and balsamic vinegar give a tangy and comfortable note. A little dry leaf and it feels like on terrace, in early summer, on the edge of the forest, a steaming coffee of good origin on the wooden table aged over the years.
      An entry in very interesting and noble. Wide. Bewitching, even.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, well, we return clearly to coffee. Burnt caramel or dark chocolate. It's noble, but noticeably less sweet and comfortable than the nose. The texture is enveloping and well carpets the mouth. A little pepper.
    • Finish
      We stay on the coffee. Dark chocolate. Burnt caramel. And a little waxed wood.

  3. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    The nose is very welcoming! Precious wood, caramel, praline, coffee, black mushrooms, wax. Very nice sherry nose. More nougatine, a touch of balsamic vinegar and raspberry. The mouth is well marked by coffee, nougatine, dark chocolate. He is very greedy but poutant not really sweet. Long enough finish always on coffee and dark chocolate. Excellent dram, the nose is really exciting with very nice notes of precious wood. Thank you Jean-Michel!

    A superb sherry, and again proof that we can find wonders in distilleries not enough famous. Thank you Jean-Michel and Cyril.
    • Nose
      very marked by sherry, of incredible complexity, slightly woody (noble wood) with an old side furniture, leather, notes of undergrowth (leaves, earth), some menthol notes, nuts, heaps of fruit dry, balsamic vinegar ...
    • Taste
      becomes more spicy now (pepper, clove), always nuts and wood, cooked fruits (plums, oranges). No sugar, very pleasant texture, a little thick and never drying.
    • Finish
      very long, growing on wood, nuts, spices
