Roborel de Climens - Grenache du Domaine Coume del Mas Whisky
Region: Alsace / France
Distilled in 2017 and bottled in 2020, with a years maturation in ex-Banyuls cask (fortified Grenache from Roussillon). Casks sourced from Domaine Coume del Mas. Only 550 bottles made.
A rich and complex whisky. Juicy red wine and fruit notes alongside notes of apple and peach. A deliciously sweet and fruity whisky. So good.
New artisanal single malt whiskies created by Aymeric Roborel de Climens, an exoenologist and winemaker that worked for more than 20 years for different producers in Bordeaux. These whiskies are 100% French from the beginning to the end, using their old family distillery and all the resources sourced from within the country.
With his experience in the wine industry, Aymeric selects the best barrels from each winery for the aging, from six to 18 months and creates a strong identity, profile and aroma for each release. He has been using mainly Cognac, Merlot and Sauternes barrels but recently has created a whisky aged in Banyuls barrel (similar to a sherry cask) and has partnered with a Muscadet producer to use their amphoras, creating something really special and rare.
