In 2015, the Ninkasi Whisky Experience was launched by Christophe Fargier and his team. Aged for 30 months in white Burgundy barrels [Domaine Burrier-Chateau de Beauregard] and finished for six months in American oak barrels previously containing Pinot Noir.

Tasting notes:
Nose: Lively and creamy. A close reflection of the grain, the first nose is intensely malty (barley pulp, porridge). Allowed to breathe, it reveals notes of citrus fruit (orange], fresh walnut and fermenting Mirabelle plum. Oxidative, it develops into crushed red fruits (redcurrant, strawberry). The Pinot Noirs influence then becomes more marked (black cherry). At the same time, the aromatic palette becomes richer (prune flan, clafoutis) and more spicy (pepper, cinnamon, clove).
Palate: Dynamic, full of freshness. The attack is clearly vanilla, roasted (coffee bean) and spicy (star anise). On the mid-palate, fresh fruits (pear, Mirabelle plum, black grape) bring lots of energy to a delicately woody and liquorice flavour palette. As on the nose, the end of the palate is rich (Normandy tart, rhubarb cake). Gradually, a fine layer of salted butter caramel and citrus fruit (candied lemon) coats the taste buds
