The Nectar, the well-known Belgian importer, celebrated it’s 10th anniversary in a grand way. At the fantastic Spirits in the Sky, their yearly whisky festival in Brussels, quite a bit of bottlings were presented for the occassion, including this single bourbon cask from Armorik. It is a youngling, for it was distilled in 2013 and bottled in 2016. The nose is honeysweet on vanilla pudding, pear drops, white chocolate and Haribo candy bears. A touch of ginger and liquorice. Very accessible despite the obvious young nose. Lovely oily body and mild on the spices on the palate. Think white pepper, ginger and nutmeg. Less sweet than the nose promised on breakfast cereals, grain cookies and apples. Again obviously young, but it does not bother. Eminently quaffable, even though it packs a bit of punch. The finish is spicy, but not very long. Nice youthful and playful Armorik. I like it.
