Here at Supercall we come across lots of whiskeys, from the dependable to the extraordinary. We’ve come to rely on our favorites at the end of the day, when all we want to do is relax with something familiar and turn off our brains. But occasionally we prefer an unusual dram that sparks thought, confusion, intrigue or even shock. These seven whiskeys are some of the weirdest we’ve found. They’ll make you sit up on your bar stool and take notice, not only for their crazy unique flavors but also for their surprising quality.
First came Cognac, then Grey Goose vodka. Now, a third generation Cognac maker is putting the family expertise to work on French whisky (which the brand spells the Scottish way). The whisky is made with locally sourced barley, and it rests in new limousin oak casks and ex-Cognac barrels. The resulting whisky is naturally sweet, tasting of blueberry pancakes with caramelized bananas, and in a Whiskey Highball, Brenne tastes almost like cream soda.
