BOW (90.5)

This is an old vintage bottle and the closure may have deteriorated; When opening care should be taken. The item is sold as described.

Serge Valentin (85)

Colour: straw. Nose: very different
from the indies, much more on fresh
butter and various herbs (dill, fresh
cabbage, spearmint.) Whiffs of metal
and motor oil. With water: well, not
its best part. Wet cardboard and yoghurt
– not a good swimmer? Mouth
(neat): extremely different once again.
Very powerful but kind of ‘chemically
pleasant’ (I’m sorry,
I know that doesn’t make much
sense), with bags of lime, lemon squash,
citrus mint, asparagus and white sauvignon,
then sorrel, absinth, fennel and icy
mint. Bidis (these small Indian cigarettes).
With water: very unusual development,
still in the same directions, that
is to say sort of chemical. Smoked
‘things’ (sorry), lemon
squash, rocket salad, vitamin C tablets
and ginger tonic. Hugely almondy,
in fact. Finish: long, a little more
on the tracks but still unusual. Comments:
a little strange that the official
version is the most singular. A good
Caol Ila anyway, the grassiest of
the four.
