Warenghem Distillery Armorik 10 Year Old Single Cask Australian Exclusive Cask Strength Single Malt French Whisky (700ml)

Brittany, FRANCE
$199.00 Bottle
  • ABV 56%

Le Baron Des Spirits is offering Australia the chance to taste a unique, limited edition cask of Brittany's Armorik Single Malt whisky. To introduce the special release its native French maker, Armorik General Manager and whisky craftsman of Distillerie Warenghem, David Roussier, visited Australian shores for the very first time.

Le Baron cast a vote late last year after calling on the community of local whisky lovers to choose a favourite from three preselected special casks. Amongst the three were a Vinho and a Port cask - but it was the Sauternes cask, used to age sweet white wine from Bordeaux that came out on top as the winner. It was also the star of the seven exclusive tastings with Armorik hosted by master David Roussier around Australia.

Distilled in August 2006, this along with recent bottlings from Glanna ar Morr mark Brittany as the new Tasmania on the world whisky map. The collector incentive is obvious, but we'd rather see this gets appreciated for what it is. Needless to say, stocks are extremely limited.

Tasting note: Peated to 10-12 ppm and aged entirely in a Sauternes cask. Pure gold. Momentarily off-key aromas recover with penetrating vanilla fudge and ginger cake over rustic scents of straw bail, damp earth, evolving to lanolin and wet wool. Within 2-3 minutes the aromatic focus shifts towards orange peel-freshness mingling with fruit'n'nut chocolate, especially hazelnut, then a sweeter, deeper core of marmalade or fig paste. Full bodied with a gristy, gingery warmth to the delivery. Brimming with flavours of dark chocolate, burnt orange and thick malt. Peppery then firmer to finish with stewed apple / smokey citrus. Lanolin and lucerne bail later in the fade as the farmyard aspect repeats. References Longrow or the peatiest incarnations of Bunnahabhain. A malt of substantial presence and complexity. Just gets better and better... 56% Alc./Vol. 250 bottles.
