  1. tcc1 scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    Accessible malt for everyone.
    Beautiful malty tones, dried fruits, nuts and sherry.
    Medium body, smooth
    More nuttiness on the palate with a beautiful sherried finish that lasts medium long.

    A very nice first edition of this distillery. immediately come with a 10 year old whisky. That also makes this whisky rounder.

    Plum Jam

    A few years ago Filiers released single malt under the banner Goldlys – named after the river Leie – Lys in English - that turned gold from the drying flax on the riverbanks. But now Filliers is changing tactics. At the end of last year out of nowhere they released this Limited Edition Filiers 10 years old, limited to 2.000 bottles and a vatting of European sherry casks. I admit, I was curious and truth be sold got suckered into buying because the bottle is a veritable piece of art in my opinion.

    Grainy wood is teh first thing I smell, followed by soft notes of pear drops, raisins and sweet malt. After a few moment those typical purple violet candies kick in with some rough grainy notes. But truth be told I also get some off-notes like oil paint and plasticine. Luckily that evaporates after about five minutes.

    The arrival is rather weak and watery, unfortunately. The taste makes up for it somewhat with some dark chocolate, raisins, plum jam and baked pears. A bit of spiciness in the guise of cloves and cinnamon. Some nuts. It never becomes grand though.

    The finish is medium long, mildly spicy and softly drying.

    I had expected much more of this, to be honest. Oh, well.

    A whisky that evolves and needs time with very special tones. I kind of liked it... But it remains a little weird. I can not get it out of my mind but for me this is a whisky that seems to have a bit of a gin-like palet mixed with sweet cornflakes :-)
    • Nose
      66 66
      Oil paint, white spirit, juniper and sweet popcorn
    • Taste
      72 72
      Oil paint mixed with tree bark and forest tones, bitter almond essence and a hint of mandarin geste. Sweet!
    • Finish
      70 70
      Dry grass, hint of white pepper...
