Nelcius Single Malt Whisky Premium (90 proof, 45% abv)
Tasting notes: Notes of butter, butter cookie and nice baking spices on the nose almost like a cognac, with undertones of vanilla and and caramel. In the mouth, the flavor is light and delicate with orange caramel, and cocoa with a hint of toast. Interesting structure. A little bit of heat followed by a slightly sour long finish. A very nice length brought about by the Cabernet Sauvignon.
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 Premium 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, Petit Verdot and Merlot varieties to mature for one more year. Finally, these whiskies are blended to make the Premium Whisky.
