Domaine Hautes Glaces Single Malt Whisky Cask #79

Domaine Hautes Glaces Single Malt Whisky Cask #79...$79.99
100% Organic Rye
53.1% ABV
Product of France
Distillation happens in a wood-fired copper pot still and each small batch is aged differently depending on from where the grains were sourced on the property. The Rye is 100% malted in house and for Cask #79 the aging occurs in a 100 year old 600L barrel that had been used alternately for Vin Jaune and Macvin du Jura. The Rye distillate ages for four and a half years in this ancient barrel and is then bottled at 53.1% ABV with no coloring, no additives, and no chill-filtration. 
The Domaine's single malts are all designed and produced "from the ground to the whiskey", and on this path, each of our choices is determined by our vision of the terroir: by relying on a reinterpretation of local know-how, we seek to create single malt that magnify all the richness and aromatic character of the cereals of our mountains. We work different cereals, the traditional cereal barley of Scottish whiskey, and rye, used in North America (Rye whiskey). These cereals, grown in organic agriculture by the estate's associates, are then processed, brewed and then double distilled in our small iron stills. The distillates are then worked white or put in French oak barrels and kept in the privacy of our cellars so that they round off, thicken, become more complex and walk quietly towards the best of themselves.
