Château du Breuil
This is an innovative blending specially created by our Cellar Master and inspired by the methods of “double maturing” used by many famous Scottish whiskies. The specificity of this 10-year-old and 41% AOC Pays d’Auge Calvados is that it has aged for 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 the 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 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
Nose: complex, peaty, vegetal, malted, smoked and toasted.
Mouth: fruity, sea taste, mineral, cereals, smoked with subtle hints of undergrowth. The length of the mouth is smoked.
