In 2023, Version Française inaugurates a new cycle dedicated to the various stages of whisky production. Called Cerealis, the first episode of this cycle highlights the emblematic cereals of whisky production around the world, with four versions made from corn, rye, barley and wheat. Distilled between 2013 and 2019 in an Armagnac still, the four small batches revisit the categories of bourbon, rye, single malt and grain whisky.
Zea Mays (named after the scientific term for maize) is produced with a combination of 51% maize and 49% malted barley. Matured in charred American new oak casks, this version explores multiple universes, beginning with the rich delights of American whiskey before moving onto an uncompromisingly herbaceous and exotic character. The palette of flavours and aromas expresses noble influences with lots of roundness.
Nose : Round, complex. Characterized by notes of grain (chocolate muesli, wholegrain bread) and sweet treats (caramel flan), the nose then reveals mineral aromas (dried earth) while delving into the world of bourbon (white oak). Gradually, its animal character appears, bringing unprecedented salinity.
Appearance : Ambre profond.
Palate : Immediate, dynamic. The attack is beautifully fragrant (vanilla, green wood, lavender). The smooth and fruity mid-palate (apricot, peach, nectarine) introduces a very juicy end of the palate punctuated by notes of sugar cane (aged rum).
Overall : Generous, sweet. Admirably drawing out the end of the palate, the start of the finish reveals very pleasant herbaceous nuances (parsley, sugar cane) that add a new chromatic tone. The after-taste returns to richer lands (chocolate marble cake).
