Member Reviews and Ratings of BRENNE French Single Malt Whisky - Estate Cask
Couldn’t make my mind up about this one! One day I liked it, the next I didn’t! Quite an overbearing anise flavour. Expected more orange notes, but they didn’t come through for me. High hopes, left disappointed.
Bananas?! What the..Wasn't sure if this was working as a whisky. When I pretended it was brandy, everything was a lot easier! Enjoyed the change and shake-up.
Was expecting alot more after reading reviews. Smell of the whisky is great but the taste is not to my liking. Found it little too harsh on the pallet
Certainly not what I expected...extremely smooth, no harshness at all...
Do have to add though... i could both smell and taste banana...Certainly didn't harm the flavour though...would make a good after dinner tipple
In terms of taste, its actually quite pleasant. Vanilla and blueberry muffin flavours really come to the fore ... not a flavour i'd ever expect from a whiskey! I'ts a nice dram, it lacks the 'burn' you get from other whiskies as it glides down the gullet, but a good one to have if your'e just starting out on a whisky journey or your'e looking to convert a friend. I was a bit let down by the mouth feel, to me it felt quite thin compared to others, but a solid 7 overall and one i'm glad to have in my cupboard.
The picture of this bottle is nothing like the one I received, very light whisky with no body. It's easy to drink but has no substance, very thin and no finish. But disappointed.
If you like a non smoky Whisky, a little bit sweet , than it is the best Whisky for you.
Who knew the french could rock such a tasty whisky? Love it.
Easy to drink, even non whiskey lovers will like it
As a Francofile and whiskey drinker, I had to try it. Unfortunately for me, it had a strong anise finish. Texture, depth and finish were good, if a flavor I don’t care for.
Who knew, democracy, existentialism, the 69 and whiskey... well they didn’t invent it like the others but they hold their own with this well balanced offering. I take it back my French bothers and sisters, I thought I may have to fart in your general direction but I’m sold on French single malt in the collection!
Very smooth and easy drinking. Sweeter than typical Whiskey's due to it being finished in cognac barrels.
I'm now a regular fan. I never thought I'd like a sweet, floral whiskey, but this is superb. Either by itself, on the rocks, or a spoonful in my tea at night, it's a favourite
Tastes like banana bread - not wonderful for a scotch
Nice for sipping. Hint of cognac!
Very different, finishes like bubble gum.
Very different. As advertised it has a lighter and sweeter taste than your average whisky. Nice add to the bar to mix things up.
Loved this. Smooth vanilla and floral notes make it a lovely sipping drink.
I love the smoothness of the Brenne and the slight vanilla finish. This is now my "go to" Whiskey for those nights that I need to treat myself well.
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.
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.
