Armorik Double Maturation. Image courtesy Distillerie Warenghem.This single malt from the Brittany coast of France is initially matured in locally grown Breton Oak casks, then finished in Oloroso Sherry casks. The nose is fresh and fruity with red apples, peaches, a hint of orange peel, brown sugar, and caramel candy notes. The taste has notes of oak, cinnamon, clove, red apples, caramel candy, and a slight maltiness that becomes apparent as the spices fade and lingers through the finish, which is long and smooth with additional hints of honey and dried flowers. Possibly the best Armorik yet. (May, 2014)
