This is made in alembic stills just like cocgnac. The sweet fruit is very dominant, to an extent that you might not recognize it as whisky in a blind tasting. It is nice, though. – Rating: 80/100

A very sweet peated malt; that there is hardly any fruit and not much spice to compensate makes it less enjoyable for me than other Kornogs I have tried. – Rating: 74/100

A remarkably gentle peated dram that does not slap your face but offers an intriguing mix of flavours. – Rating: 85/100

A young peat monster from France, quite enjoyable overall but it still has some rough edges. – Rating: 84/100

The buckwheat creates a rather unique flavour profile thay may not be everybody’s favourite. I quite like it. – Rating: 75/100

A terrific whisky. It needs some time to open up, but the richness of flavours is stunning. It can compete with the finest from Islay. – Rating: 92/100

This malt from Brittany has a very intriguing nose, but on the palate it is a bit one-dimensional. – Rating: 76/100
