surprise! The boys from Whisky Troef can be rightfully proud of this club
bottling. Available for 95 EUR.
The nose is hearty
and rich on peach, brown sugar, burnt malt, a touch of banana, caramelized
oranges (loads of it, actually) and a whiff of nougat. Reminds me of the fruit
mix with cookies that you serve a baby. Yoghurt. Becomes nicely creamy. This is
off to a good start.
creamy and spicy on the palate. Feisty animal. Immediately sweet with an oaken
edge. The citrus evolves towards slightly bitter grapefruit. Nice trace of
woodsmoke. Apricots drenched in honey. Pepper, ginger, bit of cloves. Something
mentholated too. There is a lot going on here.
The finish is pretty
long and very spicy. It dies a bittersweet death.
