Top reviews for Bastille 1789 Handcrafted French Whisky:

— I don’t know why this whisky is rated so low. It’s excellent with a light smokiness.

— If you are a Scotch lover, you will love this French Whisky. This is my absolute favorite when not having a Scotch. It is very smooth and flavorful without the harshness and bitterness you find in many others. Perfect with a cigar or by itself, I recommend it neat!

— Bought as a present for the birth of our first son. Awesome! Like drinking velvet, flavorful, and warm without being hot, something a little different from our standby Scotch collections.

Jeff
Jeff,
I had this in a flight at a local whiskey pub which drove me to order a bottle. The pairing in the flight must have been really good because when I got the bottle it tasted NOTHING like my previous experience. I am not much for peated or smoky scotches. This stuff definitely did not live up to my expectations! It was like weak Laphroig or Lagavulin. Ended up giving it away after the third try. I tried to find some redeeming quality to keep it, but just couldn’t. If you like peat and smoke go ahead and give it a try. If not, stay the hell away.

The only French whisky I've tried, but it's good. Smooth and tasty and affordable.

This is a smoke bomb. The smoke is so overpowering that you can't taste anything else.
