Bellevoye Bleu Triple Malt Whisky

Finition Grain Fin

Brand: Bellevoye Category: Whisky
Origin: France SKU: 
ABV: 40.00% Volume: 700 ML

Barrels: A blend of single malt from 3 unidentified French distilleries (“North, east, and southwest). Made with 100% French barley. Aged between 3 to 8 years, then blended and finished for 9-12 months in virgin French Oak barrels.

Served: Neat, in a large copita. Sampled at my local liquor monopoly’s tasting bar.

Colour: Medium gold.

Nose: Creamy vanilla and honey dominate. It’s got that lumber-y new-wood note that I find in a lot of young, non-Scotch single malts. Ripe apples and a touch of banana. Fresh grass, flowers, mint, and lemon. Some caramel popcorn and graham cracker.

Palate: Fairly thin. Develops very rapidly from sweet caramel to table grapes, heavy oak tannins, and demerara sugar. Spiced with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg.

Finish: Short. Oak and black pepper, with more cloves. The slightest bit of fig.

Notes: The nose is nice: I love the mix of fresh floral notes with the thick vanilla. The influence of the French Oak is really strong, especially on the palate. The finish is sorely lacking, unfortunately. Leaves a lot to be desired. I’d like to try It a little older. C’est dommage.
