VOYAGE French Malt Whisky by Alfred Giraud is a unique and innovative spirit crafted in the Cognac region of France. Aged in unconventional casks, this whisky offers a bold flavor profile with notes of red fruit, pear, and spice.

Description

Nose

Fruity: The initial aroma hits you with a burst of red fruits like black currant, quince, and ripe pear. These notes come primarily from the Sauternes casks, which previously held sweet Sauternes wine.

Floral: A delicate sweetness follows, reminiscent of white flowers like acacia. This is attributed to the French Robinia casks, known for imparting these floral characteristics.

Palate

Sweetness: The initial sweetness on the nose translates to the palate, with honey playing a prominent role. This sweetness comes from both the Sauternes casks and the malted barley itself.

Fruity: The red fruit notes from the nose carry over to the taste, with pear often being the most noticeable.

Spice: A subtle spiciness emerges on the mid-palate, with hints of clove and cinnamon. This complexity is likely due to the influence of the Robinia casks.

Finish

Luxurious Mouthfeel: The whisky boasts a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, leaving a pleasant coating on the tongue.

Floral Complexity: The delicate floral notes from the nose make a reappearance on the finish, adding a touch of elegance.

Wood: A slight presence of wood tannin lingers on the finish, hinting at the whisky’s maturity.

Brandy: The final touch comes from the Cognac cask finish, leaving a subtle hint of brandy character, which some tasters describe as a pleasant dryness.
