Peated Single Malt
Official Bottling (70 cl) - SINGLE CASK
This new Kornog comes from a single first fill "Coteaux du Layon" barrel which delivered 280 bottles filled at the natural degree of 52,8% of alcohol, without chill filtration nor caramel colouring even if that should go without saying.
Spring arrival on our peninsula has been accompanied by this superb Kornog “cask strength” of 8 years old. This single malt will delight your taste buds with its delicacy, its peaty aromas and its surprizing fruityness.
The barrel brings to the whisky a beautiful roundness, and some gourmet aromas. It will attract you looking for new taste sensations.
Color : deep amber.
Nose : a very present peat is raised by the perfume of ripe fruits, plums, candied oranges, accompanied by a delicate scent of wood fire.
Mouth: a nice oily texture and a very smooth attack with fruity and spicy notes (cinnamon) is coming to balance the light smoke.
Finish : The discreet finish is lining the palate with a light veil of gourmet aromas.
Kornog is the peated expression (about 40 PPM of phenols) of Glann ar Mor Distillery.
Limited volume : thank you for respecting the rule of one bottle per buyer.
*(Coteaux du Layon is an Anjou appellation responsible for France’s finest sweet Chenin Blanc wines, grown on ancient schistous rock).
