Menhirs Distillery, Plomelin, Brittany, France
Today we are visiting the Breton Distillerie des Menhirs for the second time with a little more, let's say plush Eddu Gold.
In old Breton, eddu means "buckwheat", or as we say nowadays, buckwheat. According to its creators, Eddu Gold has a very great aromatic richness and offers the palate an exceptional structure and roundness. We even compare it to single malts aged 15 to 18! Hmm ...
As the host of the now legendary SolidRok show, the first metal music show in Quebec television history, said so well, Paul Sarrasin (1963-) said so well:
For centuries, man has been the victim of a paradox: he seeks the precious metal that will free him, and yet he remains his prisoner.
Deep amber slightly cloudy.
Wheat, a little molasses and anise. Softer and approachable than his cousin the Silver Broceliande.
Ample and rich as texture, spices and fleur de sel on heated caramel and star anise. Unusual character but still beautiful.
We fall a little here on retro-olfactory notes of red licorice, molasses and grass.
Once again far from my palette, although we can recognize a quality of execution that is lacking in Silver Brocéliande.
