    Tried this a couple years ago at a local festival at a World Whisky table, strange, but balanced.

    basically cool part that tastes different but of whiskey. However, he sometimes seems a little too harmless to me. too immature, which can of course be due to the grain, but also due to the age. Still exciting to have tried it.
    • Nose
      OK, it smells different. Young, fruity, grainy, but different, a little sanistole juice, sea buckthorn, spices, licorice.
    • Taste
      soft and sweet, but still a little trace of pepper and light alcohol. Spicy here too, the sweetness is there, but only hinted at. Looks too young in the mouth.
    • Finish
      here comes sea buckthorn and sanistole juice, a few notes of licorice and pepper on light fruits. It gets a little young here too, but the finish is long.

    Notes taken from my blog:
    https://moredramslessdram.com/2020/04/14/a-blind-evening-with-friends-and-french-whisky/

    Odd and different, thanks to its buckwheat origin. It was not that bad, but too sweet and too thin due to the low abv anyway.
    • Nose
      Slight varnish, nutmeg, caramel, vanilla, some red and black berries and some barley sugar.
    • Taste
      A bit thin, sweet & spicy arrival, pepper, some green apples, caramel, a bit of winey notes. Dark chocolate and black espresso, pepper and some wood.
    • Finish
      A bit of wood and sour watermelon , chocolate, medium long…

    Honor to whom honor is due. And that deserves this velvety yet full-bodied drop of class. I have long left something critical about often not optimally successful watering our sympathetic neighbors and then this litter of buckwheat!
    • Nose
      At first elegantly restrained and then rises from the not uncommon, but here excellent mix of vanilla and ripe fruits (apple, pear, grape) a touch of resinous pine cones.
    • Taste
      rather sweet, but enriched with a whole herbarium: Elves dancing in the moonlight on a forest clearing.
    • Finish
      Chocolate, lightest bitterness (juice of a lime), vanilla and discreetly peppered. Everything is just right with this NAS at a reasonable price. Be sure to get one of the few bottles left!
      The coronation in the Whiskeybible 2015 by JM with 92.5 points, I took note only when I had long fallen in love with this drop.

    French buckwheat whiskey in cognac casks with Brocéliande finish? What?! Grotesque mix, but it's work :)
    • Nose
      Mainly paints and lacquers. Waxy apple and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Sweet and spicy. Coconut, grapes, tannic wood and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, spicy
