    This is an 8 year old Armorik aged in bourbon casks.
    Direct and right. Creamy apple. Spices and white pepper.
    A hint of smoke.

    Enthusiasm 4/4/3
    Whisky n ° 1848

  2. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A dram that smells of youth yet, but requires aeration before tasting.
    • Nose
      intense malty sensation, alcohol present at the approach of the glass, it is creamy, almost honeyed, level fruits are on the peach-vanilla, return of spices and iodine in the end.
      spices, vanilla, malty, grassy and a little lemon.
    • Taste
      the fresh malt, peat very fine, light, sweet, the attack in the mouth is strong then fades on the mixed fruits, the iodine and the dry wood come back. Light milk chocolate trace!
      2nd: strength of alcohol, spices, then creamy with vanilla, malt, pastry chocolate and a trace of smoke in return in addition to the grassy freshness (trace of mint)
    • Finish
      dry wood, a grassy side, fragrant malt, fruity on vine peach and vanilla

    • Nose
      87 87
      On the nose, I find 2 very distinct dimensions: an oily, supple side, and another side, dry citrus fruit, such as dried oranges / tangerines, bergamot.
    • Taste
      85 85
      In the mouth it is dry dry dry, we find above all the citrus profile, really orange peel - and a touch of pepper can be. The more I taste it, the more I appreciate it.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Dry and marked by citrus

    whisky assembled, created, raised from a French distillery that takes new flavors, far enough from the original one.
