  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, bread a little dry, a field of lavender a little wet with this special sensation!, Spices, a little dust, then caramel vanilla! it's very grassy!
    • Nose
      grassy, ​​minty, a little camphor, then a particular grain, a little acrid, rough!
    • Taste
      the grass is omnipresent, aggressive, one thinks more of a liqueur of génépi than a whiskey, rye or not,
      it's bitter, it's hot, it's different!
      some glue, little fruit, plus the pharmacy herb basket.

    An amazing detonator or an amazing detonator?
    • Nose
      Swiss apples and spices; becomes more complex with notably more vegetal fragrances (eucalyptus, lavender) and smells of bakery.
    • Taste
      Soft and smooth mouth with a nice volume. Beautiful notes of spices, cooked apples, harlequin candies, sweet lollipop with menthol licorice.
    • Finish
      Medium, oranges, salted butter, ashen touch.

    Serge says;

    Glann ar Mor ‘Only Rye’ (46%, Celtic Whisky Compagnie, single malt, France, 2015)  This is very interesting, it’s one of Glann ar Mor’s latest – and last - bottlings, distilled from malted rye in Pleubian, Brittany. It’s also so sad that that the little Formula One of French whisky will stop working on August 15 this year. Ha, bureaucracy and lobbies, always a nasty combination! Colour: gold. Nose: it’s got this breadiness that I love so much, and I cannot not think of Sonoma’s rye whiskey. So wholegrain bread, ginger, fennel seeds, salted butter caramel, a touch of brioche, this very peculiar soapiness that’s often to be found in good ryes – and that’s not really soapy, rather soap-like, in a good way. I also find touches of lavender flowers (again, not lavender eau-de-toilette, or air-freshener). I find this very aromatic and really très beau. I mean, very nice. Mouth: creamy, oily, bready, and, above all, very spicy. Much spicier than most American, Canadian, or even European ryes. Very good stuff, provided you enjoy heavy liquorice, caraway, cumin, ginger, poppy seeds, and nutmeg. And cardamom. What also works very well is the sweetness that coats all these spices, the buttered caramel, the faint saltiness, the lavender sweets, the zesty grapefruits and tangerines… Finish: long, with this feeling of pumpernickel covered with Monsieur Bordier’s (oh forget) salted butter. Or his seaweed-flavoured one. Also love the citrusy signature. A minimal touch of sawdust. Lovely bready/spicy retro-olfaction. Comments: one the very excellent young ryes out there. Love good rye. Let’s only hope it won’t become a collectable bottling – if you see what I mean. This just cannot end. SGP:471 - 87 points.
