10 years in ex-Bourbon casks and 2 years in ex casks of Grands Crus Clôts du Tarte and fortified wines from Côtes du Rhône.
Color : dark, almost red. Rubish.
Nose : red and black fruits, blackberries, somewhat raspy. We feel good milk chocolate, high quality !
Palate : chocolate with a hint of bitterness, blackberries again. Just the right amount of acid, orange zest. Well-balanced and sweet flavors create a mouth-watering mouthfeel. Tannic…a lot of tannins.
Finish : rather pronounced, extends long along the esophagus. Starts in a powerful way but softens quietly.
Comments : for thrill seekers. A complex Scotch tailor-made for aficionados of Burgundy wines, very tannic. I should clearly have bought 2 bottles…if I stumble on some bottles in a shop, I’ll buy every single one of them ! A Scotch which, surprisingly, has improved over time: less tannic and the winey side comes out!

About The Author

I never liked vodka&orange or vodka&cranberry while going out in the Montreal Clubs. I was always drinking whisky&ginger ale or whisky&coke. At some point, I just let go of the liquors and started drinking whisky neat... I hated the taste but damn was I a badass in front of my friends ! Eventually, I stopped being a douche and started enjoying finer drams. Today, I’m making it my mission to taste every whisky and to know everything there is to know about spirits, wine and beer !
