Rolle blanc is a grape variety that originated in Madeira and is thought to have migrated through Spain, Sardinia, Italy (where it is known as Vermentino) and finally to the south of France. It produces intense white wines characterised by mineral, hawthorn and white fruit notes. Combined with red Grenache, it produces the most sought-after rosés in the world. Producing a French whisky with a Rolle finish means looking for a smooth, fruity malt that underlines the soft vanilla notes of the maturation.
