SECALE 2013 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. Stemming from a blend of 51% rye and 49% malted barley, with a fermentation period exceeding 10 days, this Secale expression falls in line with the great pre-Prohibition American whiskies. However, instead of traditional American oak barrels, new Jura oak casks were used for aging. The aromatic and gustatory palette of this whisky is marked by spicy and herbaceous sequences with a remarkable freshness of expression.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Light amber.

Nose : Lively, elevated. Evoking citrus fruits (clementine) initially, the aromatic palette then sails towards spicy (cinnamon), smoky (tea), and crispy biscuit notes. Then, a fine and elegant woody essence emerges. The second nose is harmonious and cereal-like.

Palate : Direct, airy. During the mouthfeel, lightness combines with freshness, illustrated by herbaceous flavors (oregano, thyme). Next, spices (ground coriander, star anise, paprika) join in, soon softened by melon notes.

Finish : Warm, vaporous. The beginning of the finish is roasted (coffee) and chocolatey (dark). In the aftertaste, fruity indulgence (raspberry) follows slight herbaceous notes (tobacco). Evoking dark chocolate, the very end of the finish extends smoothly.
