Whisky Reviews for Coeur de Cave 13-year-old MCo

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.77 points

  1. Dottore scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Häää? Associations of young sins full of hunters master and herbal brandy in the nose! With blueberry quark, malt, biscuits. burnt milk on the stove, nut, apple, sugar. In the mouth a classic Sherrymalt with dark fruits. slight pepperiness, oak and bitter nuttiness. The finish is slightly bitter, somewhat musty-kräutrig and quite long. Interesting, very complex nose, the taste and finish offer classic sherry notes without special features. Overall, a very good bottling, which I like much better than the 10-year-old Michel Couvreur (X). 89 points

    Very nice sherry bomb, But in a good way and sulpher.

  3. Lorion scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A successful whisky and hopefully not the last bottling where Marco has his hands in the game! I like Batch 2 a bit better because of the slightly stronger sherry influence. 88 points.
    • Nose
      Pretty fresh and sweet. Apple, caramel, some malt. In addition, noticeable sherry character, a bit nutty and a few wild berries are also spreading. The alcohol is well integrated, so it does not bother you, but you can feel that there is something more. With time and hand warmth, it becomes sweeter and heavier, apple flavors go away completely and a little cherry is added. The nuttiness is also a bit back, but herbs come (by the sweetness they remind me of herbal sweets).
    • Taste
      Here again is a sweet apple to taste followed by oak flavor and nuttiness. if the nose unexpectedly he is a bit dry. I do not think so in the first batch. The conclusion is made up of various herbs.
    • Finish
      Dry, kräutriger finish, medium to long.

  4. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      To sink in the glass. Exactly my thing! Red apple, leather, tobacco, pickled dark cherries, children's dough, raisins, licorice, vanilla, nougat, some hazelnut. And a good track lovage. Italian herbs.
    • Taste
      Sweet, syrupy onset. The leather is there, the sweetish tobacco, even some sweet tobacco smoke. Dark, ripe berries. Plum, vanilla, liquorice. But also oak flavor and a dose of bitterness. But fits exactly. The colleague pulls a dense layer in the mouth. Reminds me somehow of child cough juice from Prospan. You do not notice much of the alcohol.
    • Finish
      Medium. Syrupy sweet. Bitterness and peppery spice come after. Licorice and somehow, just ripe!

  7. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A beautifully composed and delicate
    dram. Nicely complex, elegant and well-balanced. The rich and sweet
    character blends quite well with the richness of the sherry
    casks and the intriguing warm oak spices. An additional 5-months
    maturation in over 80 years old Harvey's Fernando III-Oloroso Sherry
    casks has added depth, complexity, rich sherry flavours and
    this splendid nutty flavours. An excellent single malt at a
    reasonable price.

    I thank Frank Jerger from Whisky for Life for the sample and the photograph!

    • Nose
      Concentrated sherry notes on the nose along with a delicate sweetness of
      vanilla and toffee. Raisins, Demerara sugar and a pleasant touch of
      dark chocolate emerge, followed
      by a hint of earthy notes and subtle oak spice in the back.
      Gloriously aromatic with an elegant intensity.
    • Taste
      Bold, rich and intense on the palate with a massive sweetness of sherry,
      raisins and caramel. Lots of lingering nutty flavours arrive, nicely
      mixed with a warming blend
      of pepper, spiced oak and slightly bitter notes of leather,
      supplemented by a herbal touch towards the finish. Mouth coating and
      well rounded.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long to long, slightly warm and creamy with caramel
      and burnt brown sugar, followed by slightly drying notes of oak and
      bitter dark chocolate on the
      tail.
      With water: Vibrant, with a tamed sweetness and
      less sherry flavours on the nose when water is added. In contrast, the
      oaky spiciness is slightly increased. Still sweet on the
      palate with sherry, raisins, followed by lingering nutty flavours.
      Sugar sweetness returns, before spicy notes of oak and pepper take over
      leading to a warm and gentle finish. The finish is
      medium long, creamy with vanilla, slightly bitter nutty notes and a
      hint of leather on the tail.

  8. Gloin scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Tasted as part of a Michel Couvreur whisky tasting. Compared to the first batch he shows some stronger sherry notes.
    • Nose
      a lot of sherry, raisin, but it still looks fresh, earth, caramel, a touch of rosemary, after a while lighter, vanilla and lovage
    • Taste
      strong onset, slightly astringent, sweet sherry, raisins, apricots, slightly oak, bittersweet, kräutrig
    • Finish
      mild oak, burned sugar, caramel, dark chocolate, medium to long
