  1. MickMatrix scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Very weak watery aromas. Then a bitterness in the mouth despite the presumably young age. The finish is still the best, slightly warming.

  2. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Bright, young, slightly unceremonious whisky. Supplementation in sherry barrels greatly influenced the nature of young spirits. She painted them in berry and fruit colors, but could not pacify. In general, it turned out quite interesting.
    • Nose
      Rough enough. The first nose is berries and a menthol chill. Deeper - stale rye bread and cardboard.
    • Taste
      Berries, dried fruits and tannins.
    • Finish
      Medium, dry, sherry, with notes of prunes, berry jam, oak and mint at the very end.

    I picked up this bottle in a supermarket during my vacation in France last summer. I went for the sherry finish edition, and I have to say: considering the price, this is a fine and rewarding whisky! The nose is smooth, with some red fruit and nutt elements. It then opens up a little slow and hesistant at first, but all the warmth and fruity taste of a typical sherry finish settle in, accompagnied by liquorice which lasts all the way through a satisfying warm finish, that is a bit shortlived unfortunately.
    A pleasant whisky, somewhat young - it could use some extra character by ageing a bit more, and  maybe harder to find outside France, but should you come across it, don't think twice about buying it, especially considering the price of around 35 euro...

  4. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I dont really like it.
    • Nose
      A little sweet and some glue, a few dark fruits and some marzipan.
    • Taste
      Light, a bit bitter then sweeter. But also in the mouth little expressive and almost watery.
    • Finish
      Bit bitter and not very long.

    Armorik is in progress, it seems obvious. I confess having had some fears before tasting this Breton whisky, as the memory of a traffic jam from a few years ago really did not leave me a memorable memory, even a some shame ... but there ...... surprise.the nose is nice (yellow peach, cherry plum, melon and a touch of cocoa) not a great complexity, but friendly and interesting
    the mouth is in the same register, not exceptional but seductive and unctuous and not at all agreeable with a hint of liquorice that clears the citrus nose and leaves the cocoa persist
    the finish is average and sweet, not at all disappointing.
    a very honest whisky with regard to the price. it's a shame that it is bottled at 40% .It is now time to taste the 46%
