Whisky reviews for Armorik Double Maturation

8 users have left 8 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 81.10 points.

  1. diamond2000 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: low intensity, light, sweetish bun with powder, vanilla, lollipops, apricot, salt, heated board in the sun. Over time, bread and malt tones are slightly enhanced, a little perfume appears, a women's cosmetic bag.

    Taste: sweet-spicy, lollipops, ginger, orange peel, caramel.

    Finish: medium length, zest, decaying ginger, wood, brown bread crust.

    Score: 80

    Bottom line: a simple whisky, but somehow attractive, there is even complexity in the aroma, which you do not expect from NAS releases, with a sadder taste. Although not a complex palette of taste, but 46% here is for the good, powerful and bright.

    Quite ok, but neither fish nor meat, can't really decide which direction to go.

    C: Young, fresh, sour,… this is decent enough whisky that finds itself under the shadow of the 10yo on this occasion.

  6. KB201 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    The Armorik Double Matured comes from a combination of Breton oak barrels and sherry barrels.
    • Nose
      Citrus fruits, apples and spices.
    • Taste
      massive kick-off, citrus fruits, spices are only gently present.
    • Finish
      Medium-long finish. Oak notes with a little chocolate.

  7. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    made from Breton oak, under the mountains of Airée and used 3 times maximum:
    barrel of nearly 400 liters keeping the distillate 3 years, then a few months with a sherry cask:
    nose on vanilla, spices, yellow fruits
    the mouth a little astringent, a little solvent, cereals, peach and pear back with a certain freshness, and the wood dry again.
    The final on the same markers, pear sweet and a little chocolate, a singular dram through the use of local barrels.

  8. Coldorak scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The Breton oak give notes a bit similar to an ex-bourbon cask, which I like. The finish is a bit too short, but it’s a really fine dram.
    • Nose
      83 83
      The nose starts on honey, vanilla and solvent, then becomes fruity (apple and citrus notes).
    • Taste
      85 85
      The arrival is sweet and silky at first. Mid palate, oak spices kick in, mostly with pepper, then move to caramel and cereals.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium short, the finish is warming on the tongue, on caramel and honey
