  1. WhiskyOss scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Tasted this PX Cask at the international Whiskyfestival in The Hague. Impressive Dutch whisky! Maturation 8 yrs on refill casks and 6 yrs on Pedro Ximinez casks.
    Will have one in my collection very soon...

      Burnt caramel, Sherry, Mild peppery nose, wood and figs
    • Taste
      Sweet sherry followed by peppery spices. light smokey tone
    • Finish
      sweet sherry that fades out in a woody bitter almond taste

    A bit quirky again, extremely sticky, a bit too much liquorice for me as well. Not sure whether the spirit or the PX cask was responsible for this result.

    • Nose
      A pleasant surprise. A slightly oriental mix of sandalwood, rose pepper and cumin, alongside a juicy sherry influence. Red berries, fig syrup and raisins. Some dried apricots and honey. Not totally classic but very entertaining.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, in a slightly strange way. It starts in a caramelly / syrupy way (brown sugar and preserved cherries) and then turns towards gingerbread and sweet liquorice candy. Lots of Dutch liquorice really. Plenty of spices again, mainly pepper and some aniseed. Bittersweet evolution.
    • Finish
      Quite long, some bitter notes but the sticky sweetness overtakes them. Cough syrup.

  5. Xstream scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Typical sherry flavors. Good round punched flavor. Caramel, warming spices, some pepper, salt, ripe fruits, smokiness. 

    The finish is what makes this whisky quite special. It`s like bacon, smoked sausage or ham, quite peppery too, and also some sweet caramel lingers with it. It`s almost like the glazed coating on a barbecued ham. 

    Very interesting whisky. 

  6. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    N: very creamy, nettle, some (wood?) smoke, syrup like the Millstone 12 sherry cask
    T: very sweet like a liqueur, cinnamon, some pepper and fruits
    F: sweet and later a bit meaty like a ham
