Nose (21/25): Rich sherry nose, but it has a light sweetness. This is not a heavy sherry bomb. Delicate notes of caramel with a salty touch.
Taste (22/25): Rich and full-bodied. Peppery caramel and dried fruits. Apples.
Finish (23/25): Massive doses of caramel and honey. Creamy and rich. Long and warm finish. A lovely dessert! Vanilla ice cream with rich caramel sauce – with a sprinkle of salt.
Balance (22/25): Wow! Put me down as a fan of French Whisky now. With such quality coming out of Distillerie Warenghem and Glann ar Mor I just have to spend more time hunting down more French single malt. I want to know more!
