Bottler: Jean-Luc Pasquet
Brand: Jean-Luc Pasquet
ABV: 50.9% ABV
Age: 46 Years
Nose: Luscious apple pie, loads of fruit and syrupy sweetness. Some pepper, faint anise, rich apple, pear.
Taste: Thick, rich and loaded with complexity. Sweet apple and graham cracker. Pepper balances the sweetness before a strong arrival of pipe tobacco, date fruit, stewed fruits and tannic oak structure.
Finish: Long, rich and powerful. The oak is there but not overbearing, giving the sweet fruits and creamy dessert notes some support. The amount of oak and tannins is just right. Leaves with musty, rich pipe tobacco and some jammy fruit sweetness.
Overall: Phenomenal in every sense, it is clear why this cask was a standout among those provided by JLP for selection.
