Alfred Giraud Harmonie Description

This French blended malt whisky from Alfred Giraud begins as a blend of two unpeated malt whiskies, the majority matured in XO cognac casks and a proportion in Limousin and American oak casks. This double malt blend is aged in XO cognac casks for a time before being married with a lightly peated French malt, with the resulting triple malt blend finished in the same XO cognac casks before being bottled at 46.1% abv.

Bold and inviting on the nose, aromas of warm raisin bread and baking spices surround notes of smoky barley. On the palate this whisky strikes a harmonious balance between being powerful and delicate at the same time; its silky mouthfeel gives way to more baking spices and ripe, juicy grapes, with a wisp of peat smoke. The finish is deliciously long, with the gentle peat amplifying the soft tannins of the old cognac casks.

Knowledge Bar

Although the Alfred Giraud brand is new, it is steeped in a tradition of excellence in distilling. Creator Philippe Giraud is descended from a line of coopers and cognac cellar masters; his great-grandfather Alfred, for whom the brand is named, was the cellar master at a renowned maison de cognac for over 30 years. Philippe himself worked for the same maison de cognac and, later, for Balvenie and Glenfiddich owner William Grant & Sons.

To create the Alfred Giraud brand, Philippe joined forces with his father Jean-Pierre, uncle Andre, and two more former cellar masters of the same renowned maison de cognac.

Jean-Pierre serves as the company's Production Director, André Giraud is 95 years old and helps source the rare cognac casks for aging the whisky, while Georges Clot and Gaetan Mariolle serve as co-master blenders.
