G. Rozelieures - Tourbe Collection, 46%
Rozelieures is a French distillery in the far north east Lorraine region. They produce their own barley on their farm and distill their whisky on their farm. The only time they import barley is for their peated whisky. Probably the best of the single malts from France that we have come across in recent times.
Tourbe is their heavily peated expression. Matured in ex-bourbon casks as well as new French oak. If this was taken into a blind tasting with peated whiskies from Islay then it would be hard to pick out as being 'not Scottish'.
