Warenghem distillery is located in Lannion in the north of Brittany. Originally the company produced a herbal elixir (still available today) then moved on to fruit liqueurs. They began making blended whiskeys in 1987 and then tackled the single malt category in 1998, an unusual move. It has paid off in spades as they’ve won several awards in a short time. The cornerstone of the range, Armorik Classic, brings together the best from the warehouse in a marriage of sherry and bourbon casks of different ages. Non chill filtered.
Tasting note: Pale straw gold. Pure and attractive scents of gobstopper, marshmallow and sweet malt. Aeration adds a whiff of pepper. Seamlessly integrates flavours of cocoa, lightly peppered malt and sooty peat followed by hints of beeswax, dried banana and almond biscotti in the finish. Outstanding purity and poise. 46% Alc./Vol.
