    This has been on my radar for some time now. Finally I got a 6cl sample some weeks ago. A 6 year old Single grain at 46% abv. Can this be good? Normally I drink my grains at 20+ years and 50+%.

      Nose is nice. Typical grain. Some glue, vanilla and lots of sweetness. Very nice.
    • Taste
      86 86
      For me this goes somewhat in the direction of bourbon whisk(e)y. Strange. Have not experienced this before.
    • Finish

      Medium length. Very dry and bourbon taste (for me) remains till the end.

      Not bad, certainly not for this price. But I prefer the older grains with higher abv.

    Re-review

    Nose:

    There is the obvious glue smell, but that fades away. Then there is hay, sawdust and a hint of stewed apples. The smell reminds me of corn and other grain silo's. There is a hint of vanilla in the background.

    Taste:

    Sweet. Little sour. Quit fruity. There is a recognizable grain part in the taste. There is oak, vanilla and honey. Body:

    Full and creamy

    Finish:

    Medium-long length. There is the vanilla burst. together with creamy caramel. It lasts surprisingly long for such a young whisky.

    Price:

    Realy well priced, it must be the last bottles which are for sale now.

    Presentation:

    Sober and decent.

    Nice! The 100% Rye of the same house will seduce more easily those who appreciate rather a passion and a facet more dirty.
    • Nose
      gourmand, pastry chef, vanilla. Clean. lemony. An elegant woody touch.
    • Taste
      the mouth follows the nose without much surprise; it's well done, of medium length. Without asperities, it is the ideal dram for a start of the taste buds. It will seduce by its balance and its delicacy. Coconut, vanilla, malt and a touch of spice in shambles.
      Wooded.
    • Finish
      A little short, but nice; a smooth fade-out

    I taste SG's after 5 minutes and then let them rest for an hour or so.
    • Nose
      After 5 min: Glue in the background, a little caramel, strong nutty smell and heavy citrus.

      After 1 hour: Glue still at the background, nose stays the same but far in the back a twist of anise is developing.
    • Taste
      After 5 min: Nuts and citrus, very few glue. Very creamy, but it has a sharpness that reveals either young age or high ABV. In this case probably the age.

      After 1 hour: the nuts stay, a heavy sweetness of the citrus is coming to the front, the anise is tastable
    • Finish
      After 5 min: Medium short

      After 1 hour: Medium

    • Nose
      Light caramel, lemon peel, varnish, apples, salmiac, vanilla
    • Taste
      There's a unnatural sweetness to it. alcohol kicks in, lemon, cumin.
    • Finish
      Only that unnatural sweetness stays for a long time.

    This is a grower for me, just like the no 1 rum from Flying Dutchman.

    Nose: little glue, floral, tropic fruit, hint of oak, toffee and vanilla. This is a very odd but nice nose. Forget single malt notes (it's three grain whisky) it's closer to rye. yet there is some classic millstone nose too.

    Taste: Sweet, kiwi, oranges, hint of toffee and vanilla, some odd flavours
    I cannot name, yet very satisfying. Hint of smoke, but not peak smoke. A nice bitter- orange taste. It certainly has a rye content.

    Body: Full and creamy

    Finish: Medium The toffee and oak prevails here.

    Price: Yet a bit expensive for a 6yo, but a must buy if found for around 40 euro's.

    Presentation: Sober, classic and decent. It just says Dutch Three Grain whisky, and leaves no tasting notes. According to Patrick Zuidam: 'The quality will speak for itself, which I find rather true.

    I contacted Zuidam to find out whether there are several batches of this one, as some bottles mention 1158 and others 600. But the ones indicating 600 are incorrect, and they found out only after the first labels had already been written.

    Appears like a middle road between Glen Els and Littlemill. Like it!
    • Nose
      Lange vingers (cookies with vanilla sugar and lemon zest). Or vanilla cake filled with candied orange and cherry. Porridge, caramel, lemon, caster sugar and cactus. A Littlemill-ish grainy touch. A really nice nose.
    • Taste
      Caramel, porridge, lemon, vanilla, orange, grain and strawberry.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, brown sugar, porridge, orange, caramel and strawberry.
