Bastille 1789 Blended French Whisky

Description

40% ABV, 750ml

Blend: 50% malted barley and 50% raw grain originating from North East of France where some of the world’s finest Scotch producers source their malt.

Yeast: A cultured yeast whose strain is 120 years old.

Distillation: Distilled twice in Charente copper stills.

Water: From the purest Charente springs, naturally filtered for centuries through the limestone layers in the soil of the region.

Ageing: Limousin oak barrels which had previously held Sauternes and Cognac.

Tasting notes: On the nose, the blend is characterized by aromas of orange marmalade, dried apricots and gingerbread that give it delicacy and roundness.

On the palate, it is both dry and slightly fruity with again, notes of orange peel and dried fruits. The mouth feel is very delicate upfront, then opens up to notes of dry almonds, and light spices. The tasting experience finishes with a subtle and refined smokiness.
