Starts as single malt, with barley harvested on the distillery’s own farm in the Cognac region of France. It is double distilled in alembic stills, then aged first in new French limousin oak, before being finished in ex-Cognac barrels. No age statement, but the company says the typical bottle is 7 years old — 5 years in new oak, 2 in the Cognac barrels.

 

Brenne’s releases are all single-barrel releases and are said to vary widely from one barrel to the next.

Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 
n: vanilla Coke slurpee, cinnamon gum, red vines liquorice, and toffee popcorn ball.
 
t: very sweet and creamy, follow the nose - full of Coke syrup, root beer hard candy, and Bit-O-Honey sweetness. Unique and very different profile.
 
Interesting French whiskey. I can see someone with a penchant for root beer and a whsikey sweet tooth loving this one.
 
This is a odd one but interesting to drink, wish the ABV was higher. [barrel 265, bonus point for uniqueness B-/B]
