Brenne 10 Year Old French Single Malt Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Brenne 10 Year Old French Single Malt Whisky

Four hundred kilometers southwest of Paris, the city of Cognac, France (population 19,066) lends its name to one of the worlds best known types of brandy. There, a third-generation master distiller trained in the traditional art of cognac distillation and with a secret love affair for whisky has been making Brenne Single Malt Whisky since 2002.He begins by harvesting barley grown at his farm in Cognac. After the barley is cool-fermented utilizing two to three different strains of yeast, the mash is carefully double-distilled in a copper alembic cognac still until it is ready for its slumber.Brenne 10 Year Old Single Malt Whisky is the marriage of four spectacular casks of Brenne French Single Malt Whisky, each selected personally by Brennes founder, Allison Patel. Barrels #1 and #2 are lightly toasted ex-Cognac barrels, whereas Barrel #3 contains whisky previously aged in both new and used oak barrels. Barrel #4 has a medium toast, and is entirely new French Limousin oak. French Limousin oak is the most expensive type of wood for barrels in the world, prized for its loosely grained and porous nature which imparts more flavor and tannins to whisky that it comes in contact with.As a result of this careful selection process, Brenne 10 Year Old Single Malt Whisky has a rich aroma of red fruits and melted chocolate, which leads to an elegant palate filled with notes of ripe strawberries, creme brle, caramel and burnt sugar. The finish is soft and long-lasting, with notes of fresh honey, vanilla and ginger."The launch of Brenne Ten represents a hugely exciting development for Brenne," says Patel. "This new expression celebrates the very foundations that make Brenne so distinctive our gorgeous range of hand-crafted small-batch whisky, our exceptional Cognac-seasoned oak casks, and our dedication to bringing the art of French terroir to creating authentic, elegant, and innovative whiskies."Only 290 cases of this magnificent whisky which was named the "#2 Worlds Best Single Malt" at the 2015 World Whisky Awards in London have been made available to the public.Pick up a bottle today!
