Clear gold color. Exotic, spicy aromas and flavors of caramelized and grilled fruits, smoked nuts and peppercorns, rich pipe tobacco, and cedar incense with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, long creme brulee, white cigar ash, smoked nuts, and peas finish. A wonderfully rich and smoky whisky with an elegant balance and approachable style.

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.
