Peated Single Malt from Brittany
Official Bottling (70 cl) - SINGLE CASK - CASK STRENGHT
Kornog Sant Ivy 2016 (243 bottles) : Comes from a single first fill Bourbon barrel which delivered bottles filled at cask strength at 59.1 %, without chill filtration nor caramel colouring even if that should go without saying.
Once again, The Kornog Sant Ivy has received a new Liquid Gold Award in Jim Murray’s whisky Bible 2016 with a score of 96, putting it amongst those representing only a very small fraction of those he tasted and about which he writes "These whiskies are, in my view, the elite: the finest you can currently find on the whisky shelves of the world. Rare and precious, they are Liquid Gold".
Kornog is the only French Whisky, and therefore naturally the only one from Brittany (although definitely and proudly not being "Breton whisky" !), to receive a Liquid Gold Award in the latest Whisky Bible, this making it the fifth Liquid Gold Award for Kornog from Jim Murray in four years. Kornog is the peated expression (about 35 PPM of phenols) of Glann ar Mor Distillery.
