    After the first tasting I frankly almost left the bottle in the dust as the whisky was so closed and austere ... But given the price and the high marks I gave it another chance, then another and then another. And I do not regret it ! What a superb whisky. The bourbon cask had to be top notch as it imbues the distillate with impeccable flavors of vanilla, buttery brioche and good wood without smothering the distillate. In the mouth besides the nose there are very fragrant white fruits with pear brandy and Mei Kuei Liu at the top. The finish is on apple baked in butter with a hint of vanilla and a hint of salt. Note that the tasting took place in a graduated copita. 3cl of whisky for almost 1cl of water ... And despite this dilution what legs on the glass, the whisky is very oily in the mouth! Besides, the name Garrec was given to a person who had good legs in Breton ...
