    A well made wine-Bruichladdich!

      A intense nose. Very fully infused with white wine. Underneath there is a classic but a little dirty bruichladdich style of whisky. A little note which reminds me of a horsestable, which I tend to like. With water some mushroom notes show up

      Quite full on! Wine infused whisky it seems to be. But there is a very good balance here. With water is tames down considerably. It get's more in range with the Bruichladdich style, but still quite a good layer of wine here.

      Medium length. There is a good portion of white wine and wood influence. A little sour though.

    van Zuylen shop:

    "Years ago, five friends bought a barrel at Bruichladdich. The goal was to enjoy it together, unfortunately this was not achieved due to the death of one of them. The whisky was therefore bottled under the name" Ronald Janssen Commemorative Bottling ". distillation, the spirit was put on a rivesaltes hogshead (no. 2567) in September 2008. Rivesaltes is a strengthened muscat wine from the south of France, and the fruity freshness of the spirit is beautifully enhanced by the wine barrel. from 60.1% bottled.The whisky is not cold filtered and has its natural color.

    Color: dark gold.

    Nose: wonderfully greasy, with aromas of white fruit, beeswax and salty minerals.

    Taste: powerful continuation of the nose with perfectly integrated alcohol. Wonderful to taste how the wine barrel supports and reinforces the character of the spirit. In the long aftertaste, he first has solid notes of drying oak, but for a while in the glass or a drop of water will work wonders. "
