Armorik is the single malt brand from Warenghem, who also make the Breizh blended whisky. This was from a sample bottle (courtesy of Johanne McInnis) so I don't know much about it other than it was fully matured for 10 years in sherry cask #3261.
The colour is a dark gold. On the nose we have much deeper, richer oak with Angostura spices, eucalyptus, stewed blackberries and shiraz. Tons of wood smoke on this one - this has huge sherry cask influence. Black pepper. Oversteeped tea leaves. Arugula. Pine needles! Very earthy. Water brings out more smoke and spice. Very unusual - strange combination of medicinal, herbal and oaky (maybe a bit too oaky).
On the palate it's a hot, wild combination of more Angostura, cayenne pepper, aloe and thick oak. Extremely fruity with berry compote. Huge spice - this sherry monster is really a mouthful - especially with some water. Almost peaty. Again, very unusual but quite fascinating.
The medium-length finish is black cherries, cloves and sage, followed by some late-arriving charred oak. Pam hates this one, but I find it very interesting - vaguely reminds me of a Bowmore Devil's Cask (also fully sherry matured for 10 years). Jim Murray scores this is 92. Love it or hate it (and I like it a lot), you won't find anything quite like this anywhere else.
