Tasting notes Serge Valentin: 90 points (WhiskyFun.com)

This baby won silver at the MM Awards 2010.

Colour: gold.

Nose: we’re back to the style of the Sestante, with quite a lot of honey and even pollen as well as a little mint and, yes, camphor behind all that. Mirabelle pie, various jams, vanilla custard and just a little sawdust and mustard. Very faintly plankish at some point (yeah, sawdust). With water: same kind of development as with the SMWS, with more menthol and also tangerine liqueur. It’s got something oriental (baklavas, orange blossom).

Mouth (neat): this power malt has something of the DL and SMWS (the ultra grassiness) but it’s also got some very nice citrusy tones. Lemon balm, coriander, crystallised citrons, hints of lavender sweets (the good ones)… Excellent body. With water: yes! Many well-known herbs liqueurs in there, green chartreuse, Jägermeister, Zwack Unicum… Wait, don’t throw away! (I’m joking!)

Finish: quite long, herbal, spicy, pleasantly bitterish. Sometimes bitterness is very nice, sometimes it’s repulsive. A matter of proportions I guess. It’s perfect here.

Comments: great selection, bottled just before it could have started to become ‘too late’ in my opinion.
