      Very nice nose. Sweet with hints honey and fruit: grapes, raisins, apples some banana.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Full bodied, burning, dried fruit, spices and wood. Really great!
    • Finish

      Medium, the dried fruit stays in the mouth.

    Sinterklaas
    The 10 Year Old Single Grain from Braeckman is released in 50cl bottles at 46%, but they have just released a single barrel that got a finish of 10 months on an oloroso sherry cask and bottled at a whopping 60.5% ABV. Moreover, the mashbill was rye and malted barley. The sherry cask has given this grain a lovely amber color. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
    Oh, my, yes, this is great! Baked banana, chocolate with praline filling, fresh figs and some soft spices like cloves and thyme. A buttery croissant slathered with orange marmalade, marzipan and nut oil. Very smooth, round and succulent. Grand nose!
    Good body and sweet arrival. Does not burn, despite the cask strength. A bit less sweet and the nose promised due to a truckload of wood spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, baker’s spices), but still round and rich. Gingerbread, speculoos, dark fruit and chocolate. Reminds me of Sinterklaas (not to be confused with Santa Claus).
    The finish lasts forever, is spicy and warm, but leaves the mouth completely dry.
    Impressive homegrown grain that clearly took advantage of a very active oloroso cask. Top notch. Only 916 bottles are available at 90 to 100 EUR… for half a liter. Too rich for my blood, but what a stunner.

    Powerful drink. Very nice but maybe a little bit too strong… This is a real discovery. Well crafted, balanced and unique. A drink with a personalised signature. But, maybe a bit overpriced!
    • Nose
      83 83
      Interesting nose that seems rather oily, hint of parquet-wax, sunflower oil, sherry, raisins and 'speculoos'-biscuit.
    • Taste
      86 86
      This drink gently warms up the mouth. Beautiful resin, though very sweet and intens. The cookie-flavour comes back in the taste as well: sultana biscuits, nuts,... Great taste, but almost too strong (high alcohol percentage).
    • Finish
      85 85
      Explosive aftertaste, full and oily, creamy and metallic, hint of red martini, great! Long finish with lots of grain tones.
