French Single Malt Whisky - Bastille 1789
Discover the first Single Malt Whisky from the French Spirits Valley, made by Maison Daucourt's distilling experts.
Thanks to the water sources of the Charente, filtered for millennia by the limestone rocks, which offers a water of infinite purity to the Masters Distillers of Maison Daucourt.This Whisky has completed its aging in Bourgogne, Sauternes and Xérès barrels.
This unique and subtle spirit, with a slightly smoky peat, will charm Whisky aficionados as well as novices.
The nose is long, and very pleasant. Indeed, it brings notes of leather and Rancio, proofs of a high-range eau-de-vie.
In the mouth, this Bastille Single Malt shows woody notes. It is also drier and less peaty than its little brother, the Blended Bastille.
There are intriguing aromas of dried fruit, sweet spices, and a strong "leather" appearance, which testifies to its quality.
But what will surprise you the most in this Whisky is its finish : long, peppery, with notes of plums and candied fruit. There are even surprising notes of Cognac !
