  • Intro:

    This is single malt whisky distilled at the Alpine Farm Distillery at Domaine des Haute Glaces in France. It appears to use a solera style vatting system, and does not carry an age statement. It also advertises its Organic status on the label as well.

  • Nose:

    Honey, waxy fruits, malty and super perfumey. It also smelly very young - some rough grain, damp moist earth and a tinge of astringency.

  • Taste:

    Musty, young wet cardboard, apples, pears and faint astringency. The fruits are sweet - good vanilla and a nice waxy fruit characteristic.

  • Finish:

    Short, growing heat and continuation of the vibrant waxy fruit notes.

  • Overall:

    Unfortunately, I think this has potential but its relative youth is stopping it from performing better. The vibrant fruits, floral notes and the waxiness is really enjoyable (almost akin to a very young Clynelish, mmmmmm) but the youth, heat and astringency counteracts some of those positive notes. I think that with more age, this will perform much better, but for now, it's still just a bit too young.

  • Score:

    4
