$120. 00 Bottle
$1440.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%
Tasting note: Brilliant amber / polished copper colour. Nutty and fruity overtones with hints of unripe cantaloupe amid the wood. Everything seems to be in similar measure; Difficult to pin down. Firm and peppery with almost crunchy, grainy malt ; drying oak to finish plus understated, sooty peat and a touch of vapo-rub. Moderate length. Skillfully balanced and more complex than first impressions suggest. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Armorik has been making whisky for more than twelve years; it's growing in confidence, and the quality is improving. There's peat in the malt here, and it gives the whisky a feisty and earthy quality. The spirit is matured first in Armorik oak barrels and then transferred to sherry. Sherry and peat is a tough trick to pull off and this just about gets away with it, with coastal brine and lemon rubbing up against wood smoke, barley, and honey. 81 points
