We tasted it! Bellevoye French triple malt whisky

This is our whisky of the week. Bellevoye, the 1st 100% French triple malt whisky, was born in 2013 from the dreams of Jean Moueix and Alexandre Sirech.

An exquisite know-how represented in several styles: blue, white, red and black, and now green and plum, one for each palate, taste, bringing together French terroirs and raw materials.

Cheers! It smells candied apples to me.

Cheers! ample in mouth. And I detect a woody finish.

As for the Prune, fruity nose, abundantly greedy and fresh in the mouth.

While the nose of the Bellevoye Noir brings ashes, with toast. I like the tasty and peat mouth. Goes great with smoked fish.

We finally have our favorites!

Like my grandmother used to say, “Taste and colors are not always the same”.
