Tasting review

Eye: The light and delicate caramel color highlight the lack of peat present in the whisky, with its elegant bottle proudly displaying the malt goodness within.

Nose: Complex, fruity and floral aromas with a slight peaty scent. Elegant aromas of the Cognac’s oak aging barrels followed by a hint of smoke.

Palate: An intense burst of flavor of sour and sweet. The overwhelming flavor profile is the fresh fruity scent of apples, with hints of other dried fruits and woody, oaky notes.

Description

Harmonizing Tradition and Modernity - Harmonie Whisky by Alfred Giraud

A 100% independent and family-run business, this producer uses its rich history, heritage and craftsmanship to blend three French malt distillations and create the limited edition Alfred Giraud Harmonie Whisky. An incarnation of French artisan and tradition: Alfred Giraud is creating the whisky of the future whilst maintaining a deep connection to their past, with a particular focus on quality and innovation.

The family has been distilling whisky for over 100 years, and when master scotch blender Philippe Giraud came on board in 1995, the French Malt Whisky range was born, celebrating the tradition and craftsmanship that has been handed down through the generations. The whisky’s production process is particularly special as it is limited to the availability of the exceptional casks used for aging.

Harmonie begins with a blend of three non-peated distillations being matured in three types of cask that have been used to age XO Cognacs in the past. These casks are made from French pedunculate oak from the Limousin forests and American white oak.

This three-malt blend is then exclusively matured in these extra old Cognac casks before being removed and blended with a lightly peated French malt distillation. Finally, the blend is placed back into the Cognac casks to age for several years, until it reaches its optimum flavor profile.

This whisky is the perfect encounter of modernity with tradition, using centuries-old oak casks with innovative techniques and of course, patience, in order to achieve both balance and perfection. Ready to try something different? Experience the craftsmanship that comes from a traditional, family-run business, the quality that comes from the region’s excellent eaux-de-vie, the innovation from this unique and modern production process and the intense flavor profiles delivered by the XO Cognac oak ageing barrels.

A blissful harmony of old and new, of fruit and wood, of Cognac and whisky - Harmonie French Malt Whisky.

Presentation of the Bottle

A magnificent centerpiece to bring out after a dinner party or social occasion, this bottle is modern yet timeless. Its clean design features an elegant label that clearly distinguishes the product’s unique features - a French malt whisky aged in French and American oak casks.

The bottle would surely be a hit on any bar shelf or drinks cabinet, with a crystal design base that recalls the elegance of 1920’s America whilst still retaining that certain je-ne-sais-quoi français.
