NINKASI 2016 Version Française


An LMDW exclusive

It was not until 2015 that the famous Lyon brewer began producing whisky. Keen to produce a high-quality, artisanal single malt, Ninkasi entrusted the project to Alban Perret, an aesthete, extraordinary distiller and wine lover. The cask selected for Version Française is a blend of equal parts of malts peated to 35 ppm and unpeated malt. Fermented for 72 hours and distilled in a Charente pot still (25 hl), the whisky is then matured in fresh casks from the region, giving it remarkable fruit.
Profile: an intensely fruity and opulent whisky, this Ninkasi 2016 is a true salad of exotic fruits. The peat remains incredibly delicate, whilst bringing an additional dimension to the single malt. After the festival of fruity aromas from the nose to the finish, the empty glass maintains aromas of malt and smoke, recalling their subtle presence throughout the tasting.

Appearance : gold with orange tinges.
Nose : fresh and fruity, the nose is dominated by beautiful notes of citrus fruit (lemon) and fresh apricot. Aromas of mango and persimmon bring exoticism, making us almost forget the gentle peat. This is manifested in a delicate smoke coupled with notes of cut hay and toast.
Palate : full and oily, the palate can be split into two parts. In the first, fruits dominate with intensity, and apricot mixes with aromas of mango, white grape, yellow peach, fresh orange and pineapple. Peat then takes over, accompanied by notes of blonde tobacco, wholegrain bread and Corinthian raisin.
Overall : the fresh, juicy fruits found on the palate gradually make way for dried fruits (grape, apricot) and notes of blonde tobacco. After a few minutes, it reveals a hint of Pilsen malt, leather and smoky notes on the retro-nasal olfaction.
