From the Warenghem Distillery in Brittany, France, comes a complex single malt which is firstly aged in casks made from oak grown in Brittany. Following this, the whisky is moved over to Sherry oak casks for a finishing period. A French single malt with up-front notes of citrus and apple, soon joined by salted butter, rich oak and sea breeze. This whisky has a real marine influence, which no doubt comes from the distillery's coastal location.
This was a surprise favorite at our whiskey Tuesday Tasting and the only French single malt available in the US.
