Collection N°1.01: 799 bottles, a new year of distillation, new barrels, the same grape varieties, the same Bordeaux châteaux, the same sought-after aromatic profile with the subtleties of the new selected barrels.
Following the excellent feedback on the aromatic profile of WHISKEY ASSEMBLAGE Collection N°1, we wanted to keep this recipe by selecting new 3 barrels that contained Sémillon , Merlot and Sauvignon , and thus offer you Collection N°1.01 as an edition limited to 799 bottles . This French single malt will be available from the beginning of June but is now available for pre-order.
whiskey ASSEMBLAGE is the result of the collaboration between Aymeric oenologist, father of French whiskeys A. Roborel de Climens , and Cedric founder of the Mounicq House specialized in the production of spirits made from grapes: the Vodka Nade and the Gins Avem .
The two Bordelais have combined their know-how in order to design a whiskey imbued with their common passion for the vine .
Aymeric has selected the best eaux-de-vie from the Distillerie Artisanale Hepp , then refined them in barrels of wines from Bordeaux castles .
Cedrik , after selecting three of them, was once again inspired by his roots as a winegrower in order to marry them perfectly as one would blend a wine.
Despite its 50.2% alcohol content, this whiskey is, paradoxically, very delicate and round, like other creations from Maison Mounicq.
The 3 years of aging in French wood give the BLEND aromas of flambéed bananas and ripe fruit in the middle of the mouth, to finish on delicate lingering bitter citrus . On the nose, it reveals delicate aromas of candied fruit, vanilla and cocoa.
Refining in old barrels of Bordeaux wines, allows ASSEMBLAGE to reveal the subtle flavors of the different grape varieties:
The Merlot gives it notes of red berries, prunes, undergrowth and spices, while the Sémillon gives it nuances of hazelnut, acacia flowers and honey. As for the Sauvignon , it brings freshness and slight touches of bitterness.
Their union gives a pretty color and great complexity to the ASSEMBLAGE whisky.
