  1. gooos scored this whisky 48 points Expert Senior

    "Single malt gelagerd op 4 soorten houten vaten: Amerikaanse eik, Franse eik, Nederlandse eik en Hongaarse eik. Allemaal nieuwe vaten waardoor de whisky een mooie zachte afdronk heeft."

    This whisky is really not my thing. Have tasted it during the make-your-own-whisky workshop, which was good fun but the intro took to long, the actual making of your own whisky almost felt like a rush job (I went for 50% toasted oak, 25% French oak, and 25% American oak and will see how it turns out in 3 years time). All things said, had good fun with my friends but Jan is indeed a bit stubborn in his opinions about whisky, especially about peated whisky - that it only gets the peated flavor from peated water...

    I actually joined a make-your-own-whisky day at this guy's place... His still is in the backyard and his story's are absolutely b!@#@ .. I bought 1 bottle of the stuff he call's whisky but didn't even find it worth mixing it with anything let alone drink it pure...  nevertheless it was a nice day with some good friends :)

    I heard that this producer is talking nonsense to his visitors during tours. Completely oblivious tourists that actually believe everything he says. The story goes he told people that:

    - Peated whisky is made by throwing a brick of peat into the cask;

    - Age statements on Scotch whisky are false claims because the distillers systematically top off casks during maturation;

    - Briny/salty/seaweed notes are made in whisky by suspending seaweed in the cask of maturing whisky;

    I'm beginning to understand why he uses a picture of a druid on his labels...

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 9 points Connoisseur

    Some one who explains to you that peated single malt whisky is not comming from the malting proces, but from a lump of peat thrown in the cask during maturation! Well he should get his facts right, especially if you started a debate with him about that.

    Self-composed new spirit which now has to mature for three years
