About French Whisky

About French Whisky
The French drink more Scotch whisky than anyone else and today, there are a few distilleries, primarily in Brittany, that craft a different style of whiskey. These are not peaty examples with notes of iodine as in Scotland, but rather elegant styles with notes of apricot, toffee and orange marmalade with a gentle spicy finish. The best are quite elegant and stylish and would be fine sipped in a small snifter or mixed in refined cocktails.
