Whisky Reviews for Distillerie de Monsieur Balthazar Hedgehog

- registed, a bad choice, mid-bottle, the scents are lost !!
- A far cry from what is commonly thought of as whisky: a mixture of wild berries with a typical fruit brandy note, rather short in slightly aggressive cognac casks.
First come juniper (gin) resp. Grappa in mind. Fir saplings, toothpaste, frankincense. At some point you notice the cereal and even a little vanilla behind the slightly obtrusive perfume.
Still gin and grappa, also a little ginger and a slightly more aggressive, arty-looking off-taste of alcohol and attacking oak.
Very dry, the juniper grappa pine needle mixture sticks to the palate. In addition, something sweet, chewing gum-like. This raises the question of conscience: brush your teeth and irritate the palate even more with additional art flavors of toothpaste or leave everything that way?
- grain, earth, cereal, we smell rye, more than corn, a little fresh glue, then back soil, humus under a chestnut tree (I hold it!), the wood is green and dry at a time , amalgamated fruits.
- strange, very singular, not to compare with a Scottish of course, more strange spirits!
an earthy, moist taste, wood and chestnuts!, then return vanilla!
the maize comes out immediately, leaving a rougher taste as and when, a return of apple juice as when passing under an apple tree in autumn, then the raw alcoholic appearance
short to medium, but on the same scents, so very monolithic, but really outside the "beaten track"!
- Acid apple nose, wet wood. Green mouth, aggressive, young and dry. Final on wood and alcohol, long enough unfortunately.
- 75 because I am very (too) nice.
It's as if you had been playing hide and seek and you had fallen into a grain silo ... (and you can not escape). Grain galore, tons of cereals with alcohol, wood. It's very very dry ...
Fruit brandy without fruit and without taste with wood ... If, a little sugar.
Alcohol, dryness in the mouth.
- a whisky of about 3 years, made with
barley and corn, aged in barrels of the forest of Tronçais. The nose
is very expressive, with quite fresh green fruit (apple peel),
very slightly chemical, but it's pretty cool. The mouth entrance
is quite fruity, on the other hand on the end of the mouth a rather
Unpleasant corn appears, and I felt it growing in the nose.
It will still be a nice discovery, more than correct for a
young local whisky. Aging cognac does not feel at all.
