Bright golden amber color. Roasted, nutty aromas and flavors of toasty pecan brittle, brown butter and dried ham, nougat and caramelized fruits, and sherry and brown grass with a satiny, crisp, fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length hot lava rocks finish. A delightfully nutty, buttery whisky with nicely emerging fruit on dilution.

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.
