Serge Valentin (88)

Colour: amber. Nose: heavy-heavy sherry and heavy-heavy rubber, but not of the sulphurous kind. Also a lot of fresh putty, bitter oranges, gunpowder, burnt matches, tar and, well, rubber again (bicycle inner tube.) Spectacular in its own kind. Starts to develop more on kirschy notes after a moment, the ‘sherriness’ getting more evident. Blackcurrant buds plus quite some camphor and mint. Again, extremely concentrated.

Mouth: again, this is very heavy and very concentrated but still balanced in a certain way. Baskets of dried fruits (figs ahead, then prunes and dates), strawberry jam, orange marmalade… Gets then more on eucalyptus and mint (cough medicine), with also hints of tinned pineapples. Much less rubber on the palate – if any. Very good but you have to like heavily sherried whiskies. Finish: long but a little lighter than feared, with almondy notes (or stone fruits spirit.) Comments: an excellent monster, maybe not immensely complex but any sherry lover should like this.
