Calvados 14 ans d’âge Finition en fûts de whisky

This is an innovative blending specially created by our Cellar Master inspired by the methods of “double maturing” used by many famous Scottish whiskies.The specificity of this 14 years old and 41% AOC Pays d’Auge Calvados is that it has aged the last 6 years at the Château in small oak casks that have already contained whisky (single malt from the Speyside Valley in Scotland). The result of this double maturation is totally surprising and exceptional: the nose is really different from a “traditional” Calvados. In mouth, behind the very present taste of fruit (it stays of course a great Calvados), subtle flavours of smoke, sea air and cereals appear. The oak wood impregnated with whisky gives a more aerial aspect and a subtle sea taste to this Château du Breuil Calvados.
This Calvados should please :
– First the whisky lovers, sensitive to the particular “pure” or “single” malts
–  But also the lovers of complex Calvados
– All the spirits lovers looking for rare tastes
Colour: amber.
Nose: complex, peaty, vegetal, malted, smoked and toasted.
Mouth: fruity, sea taste, mineral, cereals, smoked with subtle hints of undergrowth. The length in mouth is smoked.
