"This unique newcomer - a French single-malt whisky finished in used Cognac barrels - tastes like a soft, golden Speyside Scotch with a little something extra. Honey, apricot and creme brulee kick into a spicy ginger and black pepper finish and a gentle puff of smoke."

This unique French single malt first sees some time in Limousin barrels, it is then finished in ex-Cognac barrels. The resulting liquid is quite special indeed. On the nose, fruit jumps from the glass with flavors of candied orchard fruits, tropical fruits, and baking spices. On the palate, caramelized sugars, tropical fruits, and pleasant spice with the character of the Cognac barrels being subtly revealed. The finish is pleasant with dark cocoa, tropical fruits and baking spices lingering. Lovingly sweet and unique.
