- A chameleon, ultra lots of wood, leather, tobacco, a little fruit, a lot of dark chocolate. The 3-fold Fassreifung (fresh European oak, ex-Sherry, ex-bourbon) has the say here.
Raisins, blueberries, blackberries, chocolate, dates, orange, hazelnut, nutmeg, plums, lavender, perfume, brown sugar and little glue.
Blueberries, blackberries, raisins, chocolate, raspberry, honeydrop, toffee, hazelnut, nutmeg, hint of sawdust, little leather, ginger, grapefruit, hay and glue.
Medium-long, hazelnut, forest fruits, chocolate, grapefruit, orange, raisins, little ginger, nutmeg, hint of oak and a touch of leather.
- Obviously completely wood-driven, not really my kind of whisky.
- Blind sample from the 'Proef Olympics'. I really couldn't make up my mind whether this was a grain or a bourbon.
Cherry, caramel, lemon zest, smoke. Diluted there's wood shavings and 'zure matten'.
Cherry, blueberry, caramel, tonic, lime and smoke.

Very pleasing mix of bourbon spices, plum wine and black pepper. In
fact, there are some almost rum-like aromas conjuring up hints of
cinnamon and apple crumble. Definitely a grain whisky, but one with a
A fabulously evocative palate that tastes extraordinarily like rye
whiskey. There are hints of liquorice too, and apple pips, burnt brown
sugar and maybe a little strudel, but overall rye whiskey is definitely
brought to mind. I could even go so far as to say it strongly reminded
me of Van Winkle 13!
Finish: Long, spicy finish with dark fruit and almond.
Overall: A very good and very different old grain whisky. Definitely worth trying!
