Another peaty Breton from the stables of Glann ar Mor, this Taouarc'h Kentan was launched in August 2016. It matured on bourbon casks and was bottled at drinking strength. It is mildly smoky on the nose, but delivers mostly all kinds of citrus, lemon and some white grapefruit up front. Loads of vanilla, by the way, but that is countered nicely by a pinch of salt. Some green garden herbs. Yes, this is very nice and summery.
It has a good body and arrives quite powerful. After the first salty note, the citrus explodes in your mouth. Again mostly lemon, while the grapefruit evolves towards the pink variety with a nice bitterness. The whole is very clean by the way. And zesty as well. You can almost taste lemon peel. Sweet, sour, bitter, salty: it has got it all and in perfect doses. Nice! The finish continues on the same and is medium long. Yes, this was very good indeed. Recommended!
