HORDEUM 2019 Version Française Cerealis


Since 2020, the French Version, a range dedicated to exceptional French spirits, has been meeting producers across the country and showcasing their expertise. In 2023, the French Version inaugurates a new cycle dedicated to various stages of whisky production. Named Cerealis, the first episode of this cycle highlights the iconic cereals used in whisky production worldwide, featuring four versions crafted from corn, rye, barley, and wheat. Distilled between 2013 and 2019 in an Armagnac still, the four small batches revisit the categories of bourbon, rye, single malt, and grain whisky. Crafted from two-row spring barley, this version, bottled at 48%, was entirely aged in intensely charred large-grain French oak casks from Limousin. Magnificent, Hordeum’s aromatic and gustatory palette is characterized by cereal, herbaceous, and fruity sequences that succeed each other with enthusiasm.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Light amber.

Nose : Fine, harmonious. Initially, the cereal expresses itself with freshness. Then, chocolate shavings and freshly cut grass enrich the olfactory space without disturbing the balance. The second nose gains amplitude and becomes empyreumatic (toasted bread).

Palate : Sparkling, elegant. Always present at the mouth’s attack, malted barley is accompanied by spicy, indulgent, and finely wooded flavors. The mid-palate reveals a fruity character full of spirit (cherry) and decidedly charming (apricot). With aeration, the taste palette adorns itself with exoticism (pineapple and mango juice).
