style="text-align: justify;" data-canvas-width="250.5528895105881">This stunning French single malt whiskey is made from organic barley and aged in ex-Cognac casks, ex-white Rhone wine barrels, and some new oak. Malt just sings on the nose. On the palate it is silky soft, gently malted and buttery, incredibly round and mouth-filling, and bite-free. Warmth comes on slowly, then grows into a pleasant glow. This is a marvelous spirit. Very Highly Recommended. 95 points. DBH
