- Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Balvenie-Glenlivet 'As We Get It' (102.9 proof, MacFarlane, Bruce & Co., +/-1970) That’s around 59% vol., am I not right? Colour: gold. Nose: sharp. Chiselled. Beehivy. Herbal. Metallic. Strong. With water: pure. I’ve mentioned Dagueneau’s Pouillys in another tasting session, but not sure it’ll have been posted when this will be published. Anyway, yeas, Dagueneau’s best Pouillys. That is to say, all of them. Mouth (neat): amazing. I’ve had other batches at other strengths, but this one really rocks. It’s not easy-easy, and perhaps not one to sip without thinking, but it’s got these wine-similarities that we cherish. After all, good whisky is like wine, just a little stronger. Citrons, I get citrons. And metal polish, green apples, rhubarb, pinesap, lemons… Nah, it’s the purity of it all that’s just perfect, as well as the absence of dull woody flavours. With water: ziiiing! Totally perfect, despite a certain lack of, say complexity. Finish: long, perfect, a little rounder and a little grassier as well. One of the best lemon juices you could find. Comments: I’m not sure this ultra-chiselled profile would be to everybody’s liking. But who cares, this bottle became as difficult to find as something even remotely smart said by this shamelessly vulgar ectoplasmic entity (and waste of spermatozoid) named Donald T.
