Score
6 out of 10. Has enough good tones in it, but missed some balance in the total picture sadly. Found this one a bit complex, and hard to read. There is enough in it, but just could not get the finger on the deeper flavours in this one.

Tasted this one in a Twitter Tasting organized by Franck Debernardi. This one is a Uberach W.L.P 10th edition 2013 bottling, 46,7% ABV from the Distillerie Bertrand. W.L.P. is a Whisky Live Paris bottling. It is distilled in 2003, and matured in Banyuls casks.

Franck told us that since 2009 every year a single cask is bottled and 20 litres is kept in a “Dame Jeanne” big bottle. This W.L.P. is the blending of what was left of casks 101, 102, 103 & 104. And are respectively bottled in 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012.
