Tasting Notes

Colour: Very pale yellow.

Nose: Fresh, ample. The nose initially reveals balsamic notes (pine, cough lozenges) and is also salty and herbaceous. It develops notes of honey (acacia) and beeswax. A very light peatiness makes an appearance before revealing fruitier notes (green apple, pear).

Palate: Rich, smooth. Deliberately salty and coastal in character, it develops flavours of tropical fruit (pineapple, lychee) and floral notes (lavender, hyacinth). It is generous, with distinctive flavours of rich fruit cake (prune, fig, date). The aftertaste is swept by a sea breeze.

Finish: Long, intense. It gradually becomes more powerful, revealing notes of oilier peat and stronger spices (clove, nutmeg). Yellow fruit (mirabelle, plum) and heady flowers (iris, lily) precede a retro-olfactory sensation marked by notes of herbs (thyme, bay). The empty glass displays malty, minty aromas.

Founded in 1956 by Georges Bénitah, La Maison du Whisky has established itself as one of the largest French specialists in the importing and distribution of rare whiskies. A leader in the sector, its dynamism has played an important role in the evolution of the French market for premium whiskies, and now also fine spirits. Their knowledge, range of whiskies and other spirits and liqueurs is immense. Quality is the unique parameter. They are a major operator. Nikka has granted them exclusive distributor status for the whole of Europe
