Armorik Breton Single Malt

"Armorik Classic is the result of a unique ageing method, using a majority of refill bourbon casks made of American white oak and some refill sherry butts made of Spanish oak. It displays light floral notes with a touch of citrus; soft and honeyed, lightly spicy and smoky on the finish."

Made from 100% French malted barley, and aged in a combination of sherry and ex-bourbon casks. On the nose, this malt exudes a wonderful light citrus quality along with flowers and soft spice. Just a hint of Orange blossoms in the background. On the taste, spice becomes more noticeable with oak and more citrus, all without being aggressive. The finish reveals a touch of smoke and spice lingering softly. Quite reminiscent of a soft easy Speyside.

Echoing the classic malts of Speyside and Highland, the nose is at once honey-tinged with a cereal sweetness with toffee, smoke, and citrus bringing up the rear. Round, fruity, and spicy, smoke builds on the finish with a hint of cool sea breeze. A 2017 finalist in The Ultimate Spirits Competition, scoring 94 points.
