The long-awaited 10-year-old release from Armorik, distilled at the Warenghem distillery in Brittany.
A limited edition of 2,000 bottles, this was matured in ex-bourbon and then ex-oloroso casks. An excellent, complex French whisky that flew under the radar when it was inported into Australia.
Imports have ceased for the foreseeable future, so no guarantee when we'll see Armorik again.
Nose: Powerful, with a fine balance between fruitiness and pastry. The notes of exotic fruit and almond croissant are enhanced by a hint of vanilla caramel.
Palate: Lively attack of citrus. Then the roundness emerges with an explosion of fruit and maple syrup
Finish: Very long and fruity, with a hint of pepper
