Raided Score: 100 Publication: The Whiskey Wash Excerpt: Overall this is a great sipping whisky that's sweet like dessert or a high end lollipop. It might have you dreaming of a French bakery shop or creme brulee.

Or Cognac XO. Or Glann ar Mor, for that matter… Read Full Review Raided Score: 85 Publication: Distiller Excerpt: The spice factor is minimal and the finish is not as rich as you might imagine.

This is a French single malt whiskey. I've had it in the past, but it's been a couple years and I never gave it a proper review. Let's see how it is.
Incredibly light and effervescent. Zebra stripes gum, watermelon, raspberry, berries, lime, lemon, vanilla, confectioners sugar. Pineapple. Wild - like Juicy Fruit in a lot of ways.
Thin - no heat. Not a ton of character. Light lime, lemon, bubble gum. Fresh baked bread, some pineapple.
Short, no heat. Sort of growing bitter. Tropically fruity before it departs, though. Pineapple, coconut, mango, papaya, vanilla.
Weird, wild, incredibly tropical and fruity. This isn't for me.
