Finition Fût de Chêne Toasté
Heavily toasted for strong sensations
Whisky is a spirit that has an infinite number of facets. A multitude of parameters influence its aromas. With this bottling, we invite you to stick with our blended whisky selection and our traditional ex-Armagnac barrels, and to discover as well the influence of a finish in heavily toasted oak barrels!
Toasting is the manufacturing stage of a barrel during which the interior is burned to varying degrees. This is done in order to modify the impact the barrel has on the aromatic profile of the whisky it will hold.
Heavy toasting creates intense notes of caramel, burnt wood, smoke, and sometimes even tobacco or coffee. It is this influence that we were looking for when we designed Black Mountain Finition Chêne Toasté.
The heavily toasted oak adds character and body to this whisky. A beautiful structure on which are grafted caramel, vanilla, and a lactic note. All together, they recall the scent of crème brûlée. A few flowers complete the picture.
The palate is a real surprise! A whisky with great aromatic richness and power. Cereals come into play, accompanied by notes of toast and vanilla. A wild, almost sweet delicacy.
The finish is long, carried by the intensity of the aromas already present in the mouth, but more delicately. Cereals, wood, and sweet spices merge and leave a feeling of sweetness on the palate.
