Nelcius Single Malt Whisky rested in Cabernet Sauvignon Barrels (90 proof 45% abv)
Tasting notes: Lovely baking spices on the nose with hints of vanilla and oak. Discreet notes of brown sugar and preserved fruits. In the mouth, a nice balance with delicate liveliness and a warm butterscotch flavor. Very forward vanilla which accentuates the sweetness brought by the Cabernet Sauvignon finish. A perfect balance of heat and flavor.
Nelcius Single Malt French Whisky
France has an impressive wealth of terroirs expressed through a multitude of grape varieties. For more than a century, René-Philippe Duboscq’s family has been established on Médoc land as wine growers and horse breeders. René-Philippe continues this family tradition today at Château Laujac not only as a wine grower and horse breeder, but as a whisky maker as well. Through his passion for whisky-making, René-Philippe Duboscq pays tribute to his father’s horse, Nelcius, which won the Prix du Jockey Club in 1966. René-Philippe Duboscq seeks to express the wealth of taste and flavors from the French terroir through his whiskies.
o Nelcius Whisky – Cabernet Sauvignon is exclusively a French product - grown, malted, and distilled in France. Château Laujac whiskies are distilled in small Carle-style stills, and then undergo a double distillation to ensure intense aromas and delicate flavors. The spirit is then matured in the Château’s own wine barrels, first being placed in French oak barrels for 5 years, then moved to barrels that have previously held Château Laujac’s AOC Médoc wines of Cabernet Sauvignon to mature for one more year.
