I really like those Celtic blue Sea Dragons and wolverine-like critters on the Armorik box. The reviewed bottle is 'double' matured in bourbon barrels and sherry casks, though it is not stated whether that maturation was sequential or simultaneous. Armorik is malt distilled at the Warenghem distillery in Brittany, France. The whisky was not chill filtered. There is no age statement. The reviewed bottle was opened 3 days ago

Nose: rich with wine flavours, but also plenty of apple and pear from the barley. This is fuzzy-sweet, i.e. not too pointed or well-defined,...but pleasant. Murray didn't like this---he doesn't like fuzzy. The fuzzy here doesn't "bither me a bot" though. I like it

Taste: good translation of the nose flavours; this works for me

Finish: gradual fade out of all of the flavours together; fairly long; becomes a little more tart

Balance: good coherence throughout the tasting experience; for a nice winey malt whisky this will work just fine

(Water brought out high-pitched confectioner's sugar in the nose and some bass-pitched dark fruits on the palate and finish)
