- 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.
- 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.
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).
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.
Dry, kräutriger finish, medium to long.
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.
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.
Medium. Syrupy sweet. Bitterness and peppery spice come after. Licorice and somehow, just ripe!
- 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

by a hint of earthy notes and subtle oak spice in the back.
Gloriously aromatic with an elegant intensity.

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.
- Tasted as part of a Michel Couvreur whisky tasting. Compared to the first batch he shows some stronger sherry notes.
