With Maison Benjamin Kuentz whiskies, we were introduced first to their core trio with (D’un) Verre Printanier, Fin de Partie, Aveux Gourmands then during a trip to Paris explored their limited editions of Aux Particulares Vines 1, 4 and 5.
Next was a special treat in honour of a famous French composer – Pascal Dusapin – who is also a whisky fan…. whose music Benjamin described as stormy…. he is also known for microtonality, tension, energy and romantic constraint.
- Nose – Best word to describe? Stormy! Followed by fresh pine needles then a burst of juicy red berries and fruits
- Palate – Sweet and very full, a feast in your mouth! Lots of sweet caramel counterbalanced with fresh forrest
- Finish – Long sweet spices, bitter leaf and a hint of fruits like an echo resonating
It is aptly named! There is a delightful melody…
What more do we know? Here’s what the folks at Maison Benjamin Kuentz have to say on the back of their beautiful label….
