Sweet fruits, red apples burst out, slight cinnamon hints and vanilla notes.

Flavour / Taste / Palate
More fruity, really think and syrupy with citrus and bananas, spices are very subtle and understated but definitely there. 

Sweetness lingers with undertones of cinnamon.
Whisky aged in Cognac casks, magnifique!  
Brenne is a French distillery that was founded by Whisky enthusiast Allison Patel. Patel stumbled upon a Cognac distiller in France who had decided to turn his hand towards Whisky, and after trying his 4 Year Old expressions, she decided she needed to make this stuff known. The first Brenne product was officially launched in New York, in 2012. Since then it has been gathering more and more popularity. The unique thing about Brenne is the use of Cognac casks to mature some very fruity Whisky. The company prides itself on this fact and introduces its malts as “Whisky that reinvigorates the category”
Brenne single malt is an incredibly fruity Whisky that is matured in Cognac casks in the heart of France. From ripe red apples, to dried raisins and bananas there is an irresistible fruity sweetness from nose to finish. This is complemented with subtle undertones of Cognac spices and dull vanilla. These flavours intertwine to make a really saccharine liquid, but not one that overwhelms the senses. There is a good kick of spice throughout that keeps the flavours dancing over the taste buds.

If you are rigid in your thinking / drinking then this is probably not the whiskey for you. However, if you are willing to try a whiskey unlike any you have tried before then this is well worth the money. It is definitely on the sweet side, but that is really just the cognac shining through... Strangely it reminds me of caramel apple pops (the candy), but in a very good way.
Great taste, really get the cognac but not overpowering. Completely different taste to a whiskey but a good different.
This is a very interesting whiskey. Unique is the best way to describe it. The flavors are lot more in the fruit category than many of other whiskey's I have tried. I do not think it is something I would want to drink all the time, but its definitely good for a change of pace. Also, this is the only whiskey I have found so far that my wife will even entertain drinking.
Sweeter taste.
If you are an experienced drinker and are concerned about this being too sweet, stay away. This is simple not a good value as a scotch since you can get a similar flavor profile at lower price points from other types of liquors, cognac and run spring to mind. That being said, it is a fascinating study in what flavors can be achieved as this tastes like no other single malt out there. I enjoyed the experiment and supporting a unique project, but it does not stand out quality-wise as single malt in this price range.
Very banana-y. Quite exquisite
Excellent alternative to a good rye or bourbon
This was very different yet delicious. More of an after dinner liquor than a whiskey. Tasted like amaretto, but not as sweet. I enjoyed this one very much.
Different and gentle. You might ask, is this scotch? It's worth having in your cupboard, just because it's not like anything else in there.
It's a strange little drink. Must be had with an extremely open mind to be enjoyed, as it's not very similar to scotch at all. Has a bit of a medicine taste.
Different flavor. Very fruity
