The “Cask Finish” collection is born from the desire to enrich the classic aromatic palette of our calvados by refining in casks that have previously contained wines and spirits.
This N°1 - fût L2 (= cask #L2) edition, Calvados & Islay Whisky Cask, offers a surprising alliance between the fried and pastry notes of Calvados and the peaty, salty and mineral aromas that have made the reputation of the distilleries located on the island of Islay.
Aimed at lovers of spirits, this collection in very limited quantities has been designed to surprise your taste buds and especially to make you happy!
The apples are mixed, crushed and pressed. The apple juice ferments completely to give the cider to distill. The double distillation takes place one month after the cider fermentation process. The first distillation of the cider gives the small water at 30% vol. and it is the second distillation, that of the little water, which gives Calvados.
