This French single malt was was aged for 5 years in oak casks sourced from the local forest, then finished in sherry casks. The nose has notes of hazelnut, licorice, oak and just a touch of smokiness. The taste has a good balance of honey and tea with touches of grapes and dried fruits at first, but an overly peppery kick comes in to linger through the finish.
