    This evening we are sure of memories, that of the 2021 holidays, where we choose our bottle at the Warenghem distillery, the 557/576, a rather "old" Armorik distilled in December 2004, bottled in June 2021. Aged in bourbon barrels, then in Breton oak barrels, and which ends up resting for 12 years in Sherry barrels, n°3308

    Armorik 16y Single cask at 45.2%.

    Superb color, deep amber.
    The nose, also superb, with a lot of depth, a salted butter caramel, candied fruits and dried fruits, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, light woodiness.
    Very tasty from the first sip, candied orange drizzled with intense dark chocolate, more exotic notes with roasted banana and pineapple. Nuts are very present, lightly toasted, very nice oak, impression of beeswax on the tip of the tongue.
    The syrupy and honeyed finish, with sweet spices, pulls in length for the greatest pleasure of the taster ????

    A dram full of roundness and flavors, very warm. A real pleasure!

    Information from the official website:
    "Taken from cask n ° 3308, it stayed in a bourbon cask (December 2004 to August 2008) then briefly in a Brittany oak cask (August 2008 to October 2008), before maturing for 12 long years in a cask of Sherry in the silence and the half-light of our cellars "
    The Sherry cask is said to be a Palo Cortado.
