Clear gold color. Fruity aromas of violet and lilac candies, fruit snack and spumoni, clove cigarette, and vanilla cologne with a silky, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, complex, medium-long orange flower water, sweet almond and cashew, blueberry and hibiscus and white chocolate, and honey and dried white flowers finish. A feminine and exotic spirit; a cognac-lover’s transition to 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.
