Color
Old gold
Nose

A nice complex nose with three faces. An oily exotic fruitiness: Papaya, pineapple, peaches on syrup and coconut. The malty base: Straw and dough. And finally spice: Pepper and Thai curry. With water also some apple.

Taste

Yellow raisin, peach, pepper and dough. With water more of the latter.

Finish

Darker notes like cocoa and caramel. Peach and almond in the background.

Comments

87/88.

Nose

I get a surprisingly fresh, slightly creamy and very tropical nose. Sweet on banana and coconut, but also pineapple on the grill. Quite herbal with dried grass and wild flowers, heather and ferns. Some stewed apples too. Graeffe sugar on a buttered brown toast. Soft, but delicious.

Taste

On the palate, a veritable peppermix precedes a truckload of vanilla and all the wonderful fruits from the nose. Despite the high ABV, I do not feel the urge to add water. Mouth coating and very warming.

Finish

The finish is medium long and remains very spicy until the end.

Comments

The perfect winterdram! Well done, Danny, Gerard, Jos, Marc, Stephane and Chris. Great selection of cask and a worthy successor to the first Maltclan bottling. Around 60 EUR.
