    At first quite spicy in the nose, a bit too much for me. Over time it becomes more and more pleasant and at the latest in the mouth it becomes spectacular. Something creamy and tasty, estimated 20%! 91 points!
    • Nose
      Not as hard as expected. The sherry influence is clearly there and fruits are there too, but quite quickly herbs are gaining the upper hand. Extremely herbal. With plum and raisins, the whisky seems to me quite dry for Couvreur. Oak is now also strongly felt. This spicy herb side displaces the fruity side almost bollständig. Only with time, the typical sherry fruit flavors come through stronger again - berries, some cherry, raisins, trail mix. Now also leather and more "old school" in the nose. Oak and fruit are slowly forming a unity. Now it's going to be round. (After the palate was in the game, the whisky is softer, sweeter and smoother in the nose.) The strong spiciness and bitter touch goes back a little.)
    • Taste
      Amazingly cute! Here are sweet fruits in the foreground. Cherry, plums, figs and an oak spice that becomes stronger and makes a taste of pipe tobacco. It feels so soft and creamy in the mouth and with the second sip it is so sweet and supple that you almost forgot to have whisky in your glass. Tobacco becomes more intense from mouth to mouth.
    • Finish
      A rather long finish, which is characterized by sweet spice, which lingers for a long time in the mouth.
