    nose: ripe granny smith apple, pear, honey, caramel, something floral => blossom ?, porto is nicely present taste: cinnamon, grain, oak, ripe fruit as described above, is also something spicy in spices but can not bring home what the net is aftertaste: medium, softness with little bitterness that eventually nicely reflects the sweetness of the fruit

    Golden Carolus Fado Vivo 2nd The second release Gouden Carolus Anniversary from distillery Molemberg got the tittle Fado Vivo this year. It is a blend of several single malts, in the past we would call this a vatted malt. In total, the Fado Vivo ripens for 3 years in ex bourbon casks, so the name whisky may be used. This is followed by a finish on port barrels for 2 years. For the composition 75% Porto barrels are selected and for the remaining 25% barrels are taken from the maturing chambers of different ages. The ex Porto barrels were used for 6 years to ripen port, the effect that these barrels give is really breathtaking. Pretty sweet and very accessible. Perfect for after dinner, and very nice with a sturdy cheesecloth. Country of origin: Belgium Content: 50 cl Alcohol percentage: 48% Year: 2015 Taste: Sweet
