Alfred Giraud Harmonie French Malt Whiskey
This powerful and inviting whisky epitomizes the harmony achieved through our blending and aging techniques. We begin with a blend of two non-peated French malt distillates that matured in different casks, the majority in extra old cognac casks and a proportion in new French Limousin and American oak casks. Once the optimal blend is achieved, the double malt ages exclusively in extra old cognac casks where it develops complex and balanced flavors. Finally, it is blended with a lightly peated French malt distillate and is finished in the same extra old cognac casks until it reaches its optimal flavor. Tasting Notes: Deep copper. Bold and inviting. Warm raisin bread and baking spices surround notes of smoky barley. Powerful yet delicate. The silky texture gives way to baking spices and juicy grapes. Rich and balanced, with a hint of peat. Long, very long. The subtle peat amplifies the soft tannins of the extra old cognac casks.
