In Scotland they have ‘new make spirit’, in America they call it ‘white dog’. In the Gascony region of France the spirit distilled from grapes which when aged will become cognac is known as ‘eau-de-vie de vin’. This example by Merlet is distilled from mostly Ugni Blanc with some Colombard grapes.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/01/2015

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Fruity – an empty jar that held raisins, pear and minerality with faint floral notes, cardamom and white pepper spice.

Taste

Faint sweetness on a dry palate with raisin fruit and light black pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Mineral notes return in the finish with faint black liquorice. Overall: Dry and yet fruity. A very interesting base spirit for cocktails.
