  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    a French 10 (which approaches 12 on the counter), for a product that should come out over the years.
    • Nose
      81 81
      wood, spices, a pronounced malted side and fruits well present on the pear, peach and a return of mandarin, a little toffee in the background
      some herbs too
    • Taste
      81 81
      sweet sensation on the palate, almost honeyed, the spices are well in place, the share of the wood is quite important, really stands out from the other finishes of this distillery
      the fruits are however a little behind, on the slightly cooked apple, saline trace too!
      the malt is clearly there
    • Finish
      81 81
      woody, sweet spices, on white pepper
      fruits on cooked pear and pineapple
      especially wood that make a rather long finish, but monolithic.

  2. Kumachan scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Armorik 10 years 46% (12 years in reality)
    Aging in Bourbon casks mainly and sherry casks in finish.

    ● The dress.
    Yellow gold fine regular tear.

    ● The nose.
    Fresh cereals, grist, lavender honey, white flowers, nashi pear, marshmallow with violet, new wood and vanilla. Coconut.

    ● The mouth.
    Sweet and oily, floral, pineapple and lemon, honey acacia. Cereals, young wood and smoked gently. gray pepper. Bitter liquorice, coconut juice and marshmallow. Menthol and anise.

    ● The final.
    Long on honey and pineapple.

    Here is a nice frenchie whisky, balanced and complex, fresh and fruity.

    If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 88.

  3. maurisso scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A nice surprise to be a Balvenie.

  4. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind you would not necessarily locate him outside Scotland. Well made whisky, looks quite mature at the age of 10 years.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Grainy note, malt, bright fruits. A sweetness creeps up, at first reserved, then more and more intense, like fruit drops. Then go in the direction of pineapple and pear. Vanilla. Slight resin note, tart wood.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet yoghurt sweets and marshmellows. Vanilla. Yeast dough, malt. Fresh and light, some menthol resonates and has a cooling effect.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium to short, vanilla, honey, fruit candy and pear sauce. The menthol works for a long time. Finally, it is then tart and spicy.

  5. Noface83 scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Successful special bottling which shows the character of Armorik quite unadulterated. The malty-fresh and fruity character and the sweetness and spice from the barrels. Great combination even if I find the matured in Chardonnay, Port and wine better armor.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Strong Malty and fresh whipped cream, fruity wine gum with apricot and some peach, pear nectar, a hint of vanilla and dark caramel and quite distinctly heavy oak - European spicy oak, burnt wood (a hint of smoke), some cinnamon and pepper, the alcohol something tingles
    • Taste
      84 84
      Stronger than the 46% suspect but nice supple, first old wood then a lot of malt and pear again, and then full board slightly spicy honey, damned is the sweet
    • Finish
      86 86
      First full load honey sweetness with a little cinnamon sugar and pepper, this sweetness remains damn long but in the background is a dry woody spice that comes more and more forward. Damn long and great finish but the end is also very woody and really dry.
