Serge Valentin (86)

Colour: straw. Nose: funnily very similar aromatically at first nosing, but soon to become very ‘exotic’ and fragrant, with some dried longans, rambutans, arak again, overripe strawberries, fruits au gratin, Something quite hot, like the foreshots of a fruit eau de vie, or a basket of rotting fruits. And like in the ‘RMW’, something meaty (hot ham). Perhaps some hot porridge as well. Gets very coffeeish after ten minutes – and some faint hints of tequila. Rather unusual and very interesting. Mouth: powerful but curiously flavoursome and balanced at such high strength. Quite some mint again but far less than in its older brother. Lots of dried tropical fruits (pineapples, coconuts), bergamot (earl grey), hints of rum, clove and pepper… Let’s try it with a little water now: it gets sweeter, with also some violet candies but quite simpler, even after quite some time. Anyway, a very nice Glen Ord, less spectacular but more balanced than ‘old minty’. Let’s rate it just the same:
