Color
Old gold
Nose

vanille,grain robuste,austère,citron,épices

Taste

malt sec,pateux,des épices assez relevés,des fruits frais,un peu synthétiques aussi(bonbon acide!),un peu de caramel,un peu de boisé sur un fût de vin

Finish

simple,courte sur les fruits acides,sur le bois ,sur le grain après coup des galettes!

Comments

Un dram qui dénote par une structure sèche et acide,un peu crémeuse et boisée,bien plus acceptable en fin de lignée qu'en starter en bouche,mais qui pêche en finition!

Color
Old gold
Nose

The nose is candy like sweet and shows some vanilla, salty olive oil, but mostly… err.. apple cider! Could it be that they matured their spirit on the same small French casks that they also use for their cider. That’s not even far-fetched. But the result is mediocre.

Taste

Very sweet on the palate, but again with that weird salty edge. Good fun if not for the immediate chemical sweetness that rears its ugly head. Some apples and litchi with some star anise and cinnamon. Unfortunately it turns into rosewater and perfume from the second sip on.

Finish

The finish is mercifully short on litchi, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon and… cognac.

Comments

'Hep ijin, nep krouadur' is Britton for ‘without imagination, no creation’. And while I like the idea of a buckwheat whisky, the taste does not make me smile. 40 EUR best spent elsewhere.

Nez et bouche ont un côté savonneux désagréable. Manque de watts…

‘Curious and delicious’


N: Very sweet with a little wood, waxy with salt and oil.  Initially a Perthshire vibe before the apple brandy reveals itself.


T: Ooh, aniseed. The caramel nose thankfully never materialises. Instead you receive a salty apple brandy aperitif. Subtle spices contribute behind the scenes with a hint of waxy lychee developing later.


F: After the waxy lychee subsides, a vanilla woodiness settles with a balanced salty sweet apple lullaby that carries you upstairs and tucks you into bed.


C: A hard to score whisky due to the fact that it tastes more like apple brandy than a [buckwheat] whisky. Curious and delicious. Very light and clean watery body, equally gentle on the 'palais' and showing good balance in the main. An acquired taste perhaps and certainly one to try before you buy.

Aroma: florales, Apotheke?, Rosen, Orange, Gewürze, citrus, Heide, Früchte, sauer-süß, Honig, Kräuter, Apfel, Cognac, frisch, würzig, Zitrusgeschmack, den auch pfälzer Brennapparate "erzeugen";

Geschmack: Heide, Nuss, süß, Wein (Muskateller?), Parfüm, blumig, Apfel, Lavendel?

Abgang: mittel, mit Süße;



Fazit: Das ist mal ganz etwas anderes. Schwer zu definieren (Clubkollege M. findet sowas wie Ovomaltine!), aber nicht unlecker.

What makes Eddu so special is the presence of a peculiar grain:buckwheat. Eddu silver is pure buckwheat, not pure malt as I was surprised to read in the presentation !

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Orange marmalade, peppermint and spearmint, pear drops.

Taste

A bit of a punch up on the taste buds. Dusty sugars, rough spices, hot spikes.

Finish

The hot theme continues with peppercorns and chillies.

Comments

Another decent French malt. Complex, but unbalanced.

It's better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.
