Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes From Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    This un-vintaged baby might well be another 1997…

    Colour: straw.

    Nose: right-o, it’s the 1997, only with much more vanilla, fudge, butterscotch and white chocolate. The cask was much more active, obviously, or it’s even seen some newish US oak pretty recently. I think this works extremely well, because you’ve got both the cleanliness and the sexier vanilla. With water: the spirit wins, the vanilla’s been brought down, hurray! I even find wee hints of freshly cooked langoustines. Not kidding.

    Mouth (neat): impeccable zesty sharpy lemony sweet vanilla-ed peatiness. Not much to add, this is perfect, just a little, cough, cough, strong (S., you sissy!)

    With water: hi-def peater. Simple yet total pleasures. Finish: long zesty clean lemony briny peat.

    Comments: it seems that these ‘moines’ are currently losing their slightly ‘dull’ pearish fruitiness. It was worth the wait. 88 points.
