Brenne "Estate" Single Cask Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1156406 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 This unique newcomer—a French single-malt whisky finished in used Cognac barrels—tastes like a soft, golden Speyside Scotch with a little something extra. Honey, apricot and crème brûlée kick into a spicy ginger and black pepper finish and a gentle puff of smoke.  (9/2013)

K&L Notes

This unusual French Single Malt has been raking in the awards over the last year. It started with a wild vision and some dumb luck, but when Allison Patel discovered this small grape grower in Cognac, who happened to plant organic barley in between his vines, she new she'd found something special. A lover of whisky, the farmer/distiller made whisky in his alembic pot still for his own personal use, but when Allison got a hold of him she new they had something special. Using organic barley, the whisky is first aged for more than 3-5 years in new French Limousin oak before being transferred into freshly used cognac casks for a further 3-4 years of aging. This is bottled as single barrels at the classic cognac strength of 40%. The resulting product is unlike any other. A distinctly French whisky that will appeal to bourbon, cognac, and malt drinkers alike.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
