  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This is cask strength, can you believe it? Well, Zuidam did a bit of an
    experiment by cutting the spirit to 46% before putting it to sleep in a virgin
    oak cask. Good stuff and still available.
    • Nose
      It is immediately clear that rye is the main component and that it
      matured on virgin oak. Main component, what am I saying? This is 100% rye! It
      is feisty, spicy and herbal. Cumin, camphor, pepper and nutmeg, freshly sawn
      planks and some toasted brown bread. A bit of vanilla, hints of nuts and
      butterscotch and a floral touch. The nuts evolve towards marzipan. Quite
      creamy.
    • Taste
      The body is a bit syrupy and a lot sweeter than the nose promised. Yes,
      vanilla, cherries, mint, oranges, baked apples and a truckload of caramel make
      it sweet indeed, while pepper and nutmeg take care of the spicy side. A good
      continuation of the nose.
    • Finish
      Oh, yeah, in the medium long finish I suddenly get raspberries and
      walnuts. Nice!
