Serge Valentin (92)

There’s a beautiful elephant on the label, let’s hope the whisky won’t be too pachydermic (lame, S.).

Colour: white wine (eh?)

Nose: rather in the style of the 23 yo, which the pale colour already suggested. Chalk, lemon, ‘good’ sulphur, clay, bandages, citrons, hints of eucalyptus, lamp petroleum, glycerine… Totally spirit-driven after all these years, that’s the… hey, that’s the spirit! With water: whisky chalkiness at its best.

Mouth (neat): Mr Silver Seal, its not funny to bottle some old Clynelish under another name! Seriously, this is quite different, since there are all these sulphury/petroly notes that are not to be found in Clynelish (while Clynelish has got much more straight wax), but the ‘spirits’ are the same. Ha, spirit! Lovely notes of lemon oil, sesame oil, quinces… It’s perfect whisky, seriously, only good refill wood and a long ageing may give you this. Dazzling. With water: p.e.r.f.e.c.t.i.o.n.

Finish: as I just said.

Comments: I hadn’t imagined this baby would even beat the The Bottlers – in my book.
