  1. drummer & timmer did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    SMWS:
    An old Belgian farmhouse ale at first nosing. Plentiful notes of hot ceramics, Wensleydale with apricot chunks, engine oil, toolboxes, medical embrocations and gorse flowers by the sea. Things like wood sap, camphor, salted game meats and (eventually) emerging tropical aspects such as passion fruit, lime zest, wildflowers and citrus infused furniture waxes. With reduction there's an explosion of exoticism. Green banana, papaya, star fruit, guava, melon and then vegetable broth, miso, sourdough and the fragile smokiness of Earl Grey tea. Some saline aged oloroso, sandalwoods and red fruit throat sweets. The mouth is liquified cough sweets, ancient medicines and aged herbal liqueurs. Wood char, dried mango chunks and orange cocktail bitters all mixed up with salted caramel and pistachio nuts. Water lifts out smoked cereals, tiger balm, iodine tablets, pastis and dried seaweed crackers. Matured for 20 years in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a second-fill PX hogshead.
