    I had the luck to be able to taste this gem at passie for whisky in Rijswijk, when i picked up my bottle.

    does really need some time to open up and really show it's beauty. It's not your every day whisky, and the single distillation makes it a bit of an unpolished gem, which i really like!

    great find Boogie and friends!

      first quite rough and farmy, the cow on the label is well chosen, it does really smell like a cow farm with hay and grass. after a while a nice layer of honey and flowers opens up and later on even more tropical tropical fruits come up

      first a bit herb-like and a little rough, which is to be expected from a single-distillation. later in time a very pretty bouquet of wild flowers, oak spices and lots of tropical fruit come up, pineapple, mango, papaya, peaches, the whole lot.

      long, very long, i could still find it lingering on my tongue after i left the shop. nice old wood, antique books and in the background to same fruits as in the taste. Also brings something earthy and spicy, and dies with a slight menthol sensation.
