This was a surprise. A French Whisky that is peaty and smooth just like a Scotch Whiskey. This Whisky has some fire to it. My assistant has added some water and seems to be enjoying it more. i can see why. It allows the flavor to develop. It's smokey with some oak and something sweet. I bought it St. Malo and spent 25 Euros for this. Good luck trying to find it in the states.
