I'd rate the price 67, because it's about the price at this moment.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Sinaasappelig, vanille, hooi/gras. "Cremige" geur ("dikke whisky"). Op achtergrond ook iets houtigs. 

Taste

Kruidig, vanille, ontzettend romige textuur. Gaat van sinaasappel/citrus via rood fruit over naar zoet (anijs met een beetje snoepkralen-zoetheid). 

Finish

Lange finish waarin zoetheid verder naar voren komt (sherry-invloeden?). 

Comments

Tasted during a blind tasting competition in June 2015.

Nose

The nose is soft and sweet on mostly raisins, those small dried ones that come in a carton box that you put in your kid’s lunchbox. Then some caramel and a hint of brown sugar, the Graeffe. A slice of white bread. Semoule. Hint of pineapple, sprinkled with syrup. Very nice. Adding water put the emphasis on the bread, though.

Taste

It is powerful and spicy on the palate, but honeysweet. Next to the raisins, I now get more pineapple and candied peach. The spices include liquorice, pepper and cloves. Adding water makes it fall apart somewhat, so this is no swimmer.

Finish

The finish is fairly long, but offers nothing new.

Comments

Promising nose, but this malt does not deliver on that promise on the palate nor the finish. Keep water away.
