    Rinse

    I am fond of Duvel. It’s a great beer. Their yearly Barrel Aged versions are equally excellent. But what I have tried of their Duvel Distilled – their shot at whisky, one from 2009 and one from 2013 – was completely unconvincing (and I’m being polite). But when they announced their 10 years old in 2019, I admit I was intrigued. Not enough to buy a bottle though. Luckily my buddy Niek was able to offer me a sample. It is a lot darker than its predecessors.

    The nose is very flat, to be honest. At first I smell very little and even with hand warmth I hardly discover anything. This is not off to a good start, actually. I get some apricots, vanilla and breakfast cereals, but unfortunately also some cardboard and wet dog. Oh, well.

    The arrival is very soft, very floral (violets) and candy-like. It’s a good thing they don’t call this whisky, but simply Duvel Distilled, for it is still more like a grain barley wine than my favorite water of life. Luckily it has a little more body than the previous releases (but that is hardly an accomplishment).

    The finish, however, is fairly pleasant: long, a bit spicy, soft and mildly drying.

    Still a very mediocre little thing. I run down to my cellar to grab another Duvel Barrel Aged beer to rinse the mouth. Thanks anyway, Niek.

    young ripened corn in color, very light oily movement in the glass, thin tears and fairly fast

      fresh, if you search I get the hop influences, spicy with a light sweetness
    • Taste

      spicy, round, strong pungent on the lips, but disappears quickly,

      powerful in the end, slightly on the pleasant bitter side for me. I expected a little more but my hopes were too high
