ARMORIK 6 ans 2011 Chène Neuf LMDW Cellar Book Of 55%
Single Malt Whisky, France / Brittany, 70cl, Ref: 53721
At every stage of the tasting, this new oak bottling impresses with its perfectly integrated wood. Various strengths of sometimes even sweet spice, vanilla and the toasted notes intrinsic to new oak thus appear together in perfect harmony with the fresh and jammy fruit, citrus fruit and heady florals of the new spirit. This teamwork is an undeniable success and takes Armorik to aromatic lands that no other single malt has explored.
Profile: the complex initial nose is also very spicy, vanilla and delicately woody. Allowed to breathe, it becomes fruity (pear), floral and mentholated. The distinguished palate reproduces the fruity and vanilla notes of the nose. Stronger spices take hold of the palate, along with notes of malted barley and chocolate. The velvety finish pays testament to the high quality of its noble wood.

- Appearance : burnished gold.
- Nose : refined, complex. The particularly aromatic initial nose wavers between spice (clove, nutmeg) and vanilla, with a background of woody and toasty notes. Allowed to breathe, it becomes increasingly fruity (pear, apple), floral (white lilac) and mentholated. Next, sweeter spices (cinnamon, cardamom) accompany toffee and cashew nuts. A remarkably well-balanced nose overall.
- Palate : elegant, distinguished. The same fresh fruit and vanilla give the opening of the palate lots of juice and sweetness. Then, very quickly, stronger spices (pepper, star anise) take hold. This livens up the palette of flavours, which then develops a more malty and chocolate register (cocoa beans, praline).
- Overall : serene, balanced. A handful of citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit) bring acidity to the now roasted (coffee) and rooty (ginger) finish. The velvety mouthfeel pays testament to the high quality of its noble wood. The retro-nasal olfaction is slightly honeyed (acacia) and fruity (apple jelly). The empty glass is spicy (saffron, cumin) and floral (geranium, carnation).
- The brand
For more than a century this family distillery has produced spirits whose reputation extends beyond Armorican borders, combining innovation and expertise. In 1987, Warenghem began producing the first French single malt: Armorik was born. A genuine symbol of the distillery’s values, Armorik showcases both the quality of its expertise and its love of the Breton terroir: not only are the single malts all aged in Brittany but they also often contain salty notes as well as notes of salted caramel and cooked apples that recall the culinary heritage and traditional alcohol production of the area. These single malts are made from both malted and unmalted barley. A sign of recognised expertise, in February 2014, Warenghem won the gold medal at the “Concours Général Agricole” for their Armorik Classic.

Laphroaig 10 year old is undoubtedly one of the all time great malt whiskies from Scotland. Its idiosyncratic peaty character stands out...€46.00

Superbe whisky, un peu déçu que le numéro de la bouteille ne soit pas précisé (550 btes).
