    First heard about this french whisky from a London bartender. Very surprising product, tastes nothing like a single malt scotch. my new favorite Sunday whisky!

    1 dimensional. Citrus and apple nose with strong apple palate. Hot alcohol burn. Tastes like low quality calvados. Too bad, I really had high hopes for this one.

    Excellent style of whisky, extremely smooth and interesting finish with the cognac barrel aging, almost like a high quality armagnac.
