Kornog Taouarc'h Trived 10 BC

Kornog Taouarc'h Trived 10 BC

Official bottling
Single malt - Brittany
46% ABV

Nose: Peat, smoke, grapefruit, olive oil, orange juice, pears, hints of lemon zest.
Mouthfeel: Light body, thickens slightly, syrupy, slippery .
Tasting: Bitter salty. Pear, smoke, grapefruit, olive oil, lemon zest, sea salt, hints of peanuts.
Finish: Long. Peat, ginseng, pears, hints of sea salt.


Doesn't matter where a whisky comes from (the French can make good whisky, for sure), all that matters is how it tastes. This one is really quite peaty, with swathes of smoke and bitter peat overlaying some salty, slightly fruity, tart spirit. It's good stuff, but might have benefited from aging a little more. I think it's between 5 and 10 years old, closer to 5. Nice salty tang though, great touch.


I like this.
