French Whisky

Blended

Breizh Whisky Whisky Breton Blended Single Distillerie
Blended - France - 42.00%
8 If only the palate had a little more intensity, then it would have scored a lot higher.

Black Mountain BM No2
Blended - France - 42.00%
7 A lovely malt, which runs out of steam a little on the palate. I would have liked to have seen a little more oak interaction.

Single Grain

Kornog Taouarc'h Trived 12 BC 3 Years Old
Single Grain - France - 46.00%
8 A stunning achievement for such a young whisky. Don't look for complexity (yet) but you do get the full enjoyment of its character.

Single Malt

Armorik Maître de Chai
Single Malt - France - 46.00%
8 Distinctly different and proving once again that great whisky-making isn't just the preserve of the Scottish.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glann Ar Mor 2005 3 Years Old
Single Malt - France - 46.00%
8 Like a walk in a field after a few rainy days. Nicely invigorating. It does not really need water or just a wee drop to cut some edges.
