Jonathan Carmichael, head of Harvey Hall, now also has his own Valinch, after Tima Mackinnon, one of his two supervisors, made a name for himself with the great Port Charlotte Crew Valinch 03 very early on. The Valinch himself has strong frame data. 25 years maturing, 22 of them in the Bourbon barrel and the last 3 in a Calvados barrel. After Valinch 11 again Calvados / Bourbon. But there are individual barrels, each barrel has its peculiarities to explore and enjoy. Eye: Nose: Optically quite bright, clear apple juice inevitably comes to my mind. Very nice apple notes. Partly, if he gets some time and air, even baked apple flavors. Rumrosines, vanilla from the bourbon barrel, everything is there. I like it, even though I'm not the biggest Calvados fan under the sun.
