Kornog Sherry Oloroso Cask Finish 70cl 46°
This Kornog Single Malt is a peaty version of Breton whisky aged in Bourbon casks and refined in Oloroso Sherry casks.
This is the first time that the Breton distillery Glann Ar Mor proposes a maturation of a Sherry Oloroso cask. It was bottled between late 2014 and early 2015.
Its advertised peat rate is 30 to 35 ppm (phenols).
*PPM - phenols parts per million, measuring the influence of the oily smoke peat infusing the germinated barley during the drying process. The longer the exposure, the highest the ppm value is. A well peated whisky reaches a 40-50 ppm. But every whisky still develops its very own character and mouthfeel sensation, depending on the style of each distillery.

Glann Ar Mor means "next to the sea" in Breton language. In 1999, Martine and Jean Donnay chose this authentic marine environment for their distillery. This geographical location has an important role in the aging process of these breton whiskies: the temperature, humidity and the maritime climate.
