2018 Glann ar Mor Kornog Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish Peated Single Malt French Whisky (700ml)

Brittany, FRANCE
$199. 00
$2388.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%
Tasting note: [2018 release] x Bourbon casks are the norm at Glann ar Mor, so this Oloroso Sherry finish is something of a novelty. The peat has a mezcal-like edge, in this case there's opening suggestions of vinyl and varnish, mingling with vaguely green notes (white pepper, dried grass). Aeration accents the sweet barley as honey, boiled confectionary... marzipan? More definitive peat in the mouth, also flavours of toasted fruit cake, trailing off with green-wood smoke and a mildly grassy bitter-sweetness. Always engaging, this distillery has established a distinctive style early on. Non chill filtered. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... How heart warming to find not only a clean oloroso butt at work, but the smoke and fruit entirely harmonised. 92 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2020
