Like all the whiskies in the Bellevoye range, Bellevoye Noir is a whisky produced entirely in France.
This peated triple malt is a blend of three whiskies, each from a different French distillery. Each of them has been aged for 5 years in its original cellar.
After blending in the Charente, Bellevoye Noir spends a year in new French oak barrels that have been toasted.
The nose seems quite soft despite the presence of peat. Indeed, there is a light iodine smoke with clearer scents of cold tobacco. However, there is also a slightly drying counterpart: liquorice, burnt wood, incense, coffee, vegetation (dried herbs, mint, sage) and spices (grey pepper, clove). In addition, there are sweeter scents such as apricot (fresh and dry) and brown sugar. It is therefore a very compact aromatic block.
The palate remains moderately full but well supported by the peat (smoke, dried herbs), giving liquorice, peppermint and burnt wood. A bitterness develops generously in the mid-palate, reviving its more vegetal, even floral character (carnation, lilac). However, a little roasted malt, brown sugar, lemon and clove are discovered. The freshness of the mint then brings a welcome breeze.
The finish is rather lively and repeats the flavours described above. Liquorice and smoke mingle with burnt wood and cut herbs. A soft smoky note (wood, tobacco), a little lemon and coffee beans remain in the mouth.
" A peaty whisky that gives off a clearly woody and roasted profile. . . "
