BOW (92)

only 1 of 60 bottles

Serge Valentin (91)

A cascade of bottlers; UK -> Germany -> Switzerland, isn’t that funny?

Colour: deep amber.

Nose: starts less expressively than the colour suggested, and rather straighter/sharper. Gets then very meaty, beefy (grilled steak). Balsamico, ham, prunes… Encapsulates the peat in a certain way. Same notes of burnt matches and gunpowder as in the Jean Boyer, also notes of cassis jelly and leather (horse saddle). With water: it got even meatier and wilder! ‘Hare belly’ as we say in the wine world (not Hare Krishna), freshly opened box of 8-9-8’s (make that Lusitanias), leather… Just superb now.

Mouth (neat): excellent attack, blending big peat and big sherry, with a coating fruitiness this time. Apricot jam, cherry jam and liqueur, green tea… This is big, big whisky. Touches of rubber (rubber band). With water: the rubber vanished but the rest got even more beautiful. Peated prunes (who’s gonna try to make that?)

Finish: as long as an US invasion - but very perfect.

Comments: only 60 bottles? Life is unjust
