This new Kornog combines the notes of ageing on the seaside with the softness of Andalusia. We are talking about maturation in Sherry Butt… and more specifically in Pedro Ximenez.
Here, with the Pedro Ximenez, a variety of Sherry produced in the south of Andalusia, the aromas are powerful and fruity, around an elegant dryness.
Nose: rich from plum to fig to coffee
Palate: In the first mouth we find aromas of nuts and a second one on bitter orange subtly cocoa.
Finish: Soft and long, leaving a nice fruity and fat veil! To be enjoyed with a square of dark chocolate.
"Glann ar Mor" is a familly owned artisan distillery, created by Martine and Jean Donnay and facing the seaside on the Northern coast of Brittany in France, in a wild and beautiful setting. With its double live flame distillation (yes, for the wash still "and" the spirit still), its pair of small onion shaped stills, its worm tubs, its wooden wash backs, and in being easily "The Slowest Distiller in the West", Glann ar Mor is really different and simply unique amongst whisky distilleries. There must be magic in their hands, for the quality of their whiskey is impressive and to Jim Murray also. Not only that, but being the first in the world to age in Sauternes casks may have helped also !
