Tasting Notes

This gem of a distillery has been in the same family's hands for four generations, tucked away in a picturesque corner of France. This exceptional blended whisky release marks their debut in the States and we couldn't be more excited about it. The whisky is a mash of grain and malted barley distilled in pot stills and aged for a minimum of seven years in Sauternes casks from Bordeaux's top estates. Notes include apricot marmalade, orange blossom honey, kumquat, vanilla custard, white pepper, roasted almond and a thread of smoke. The palate is seamless and supple and just as inviting as the effusive aromas. This really blew us away and is easily one of the best values in the whisky category. A must-have.

As much as we keep singing the praises of French whisky, it remains a much underloved category on the shelf. That's honestly pretty great for you though, as bottles like this can be had for less than $40. Everything about this bottle is neat. The mash is an unusual split of wheat and malted barley, and the whiskies for the Blend Supérieur are aged for a minimum of 7 years in ex-dessert wine casks coming directly from the outrageously good Château Doisy Daëne of Sauternes. That means it drinks like the love child of a softer, wheated bourbon and the Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or. The palate is toasty but elegant, and drips with notes of honey, toasted nuts, sweet cereals and dried apricot fruit. Anyway, jaded spirits astronaut or novice Bourbon lover, this is the right bottle at the right price.

Once part of the Holy Roman Empire, Alsace was gradually put under French sovereignty during the 17th Century and eventually made one of the provinces of France. Yet, as...
