With only 1003 numbered bottles, ASSEMBLAGE Whisky unveils Collection N°2, a sweeter and more floral single malt than Collection N°1.
Following the success of the delicate and complex Collection N°1, Aymeric and Cedrik once again wanted to bring together their shared passion for the vine and work together on a new French Whisky with the aim of offering a new tasting experience and a surprising new "Assemblage"!
ASSEMBLAGE whisky is the result of the collaboration between Aymeric, oenologist and father of A. Roborel de Climens French whiskies, and Cedric Roborel de Climens. Roborel de Climens whiskies, and Cedrik, founder of the Maison Mounicq, which specialises in the production of spirits made from grapes : Nadé Vodka and Avem Gins.
The two Bordelais have combined their know-how to create a whisky that reflects their shared passion for the vine.
Aymeric selected the best eaux-de-vie from the Distillerie Artisanale Hepp, then refined them in wine barrels from Bordeaux Châteaux.
Cedrik, having selected two of them, was inspired, once again, by his winegrowing roots in order to blend them perfectly as one would blend a wine.
Collection N°2 is produced exclusively by the Hepp Distillery, and is therefore a single malt distilled exclusively from the fermentation of malted barley.
The 3 years ageing in French Limousin oak casks gives the whisky depth and a more woody side.
The maturation in 2 old Bordeaux wine casks allows ASSEMBLAGE Collection n°2 to reveal the subtle flavours of the different grape varieties:
The Sémillon barrel from Clos Floridène (Graves) gives it floral nuances of acacia to which are added bitter and astringent flavours. As for the Muscadelle du Clos Floridène (Graves) barrel, it brings a nice citrus nose followed by exotic notes with ginger and mango aromas, accompanied by floral and honeysuckle flavours. The combination of these two aromatic profiles brings a real complexity to our new creation.
