Serge Valentin (91)
One of my desert island malts. WF 90 in 2020. We'll do this quickly… Colour: straw. Nose: but of course. Smoked salmon, plasticine, fir liqueur, old magazines, mud and plaster, crushed slates, mustard, manzanilla, apple peelings, damp ashes, retsina, whatnot. Mouth: amazing. I'm wondering if they do not keep improving the recipe. Flabbergasting lemons and tight green fruits (all kinds of unripe berries, really), chalk and Sancerre, ashes, a drop of seawater, green peppercorns, yuzu, umami sauce… Oh wow, this one floors me. Finish: tight, fresh, nervous, citrusy, chalky, with some wholegrain bread and a tiny touch of juniper. Perhaps. Comments: amazing. #1 bang-for-your-buck whisky for sure, an utter star-killer. Frankly, and I am always siding with the consumer (unless he/she's an unapologetical Trumpist), the price here is a b****y scandal, for crying out loud!
