  1. markjedi1 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Impressive Dirk Verleysen, known from Dram 242 in Lebbeke, launched his own single grain whiskey in February of this year. He was fired from rye and malted barley and matured for no less than 9 years on first fill bourbon barrels from Four Roses. It is also a single cask, bottled at 64.4%. That is all the trouble. Beautiful, sweet, round nose on everything you can expect from the better grain and more. Vanilla, cali, chocolate with praliné, brown bread, nuts ... the rye has done its job. Despite the relatively young age, no test of wood glue or dissolvent, which sometimes you can have at young grain. This smells much older than its 9 years. It also comes in quite pleasantly soft despite the high alcohol percentage. Once the liquid reaches all corners of your mouth, it becomes very hot and very spicy. Now I taste some oak, but it is easily drowned out by the sweet notes of vanilla and butter balls. The finish is particularly long and spicy. He leaves your mouth half dry and makes you long for a lock of water. Impressively beautiful for such a young grain. And even from home soil too.

    Enthusiasm 3/5 Whiskey n ° 1389
    • Nose
      A strange nose mixing vanilla, solvent and blotting paper. Some green notes that will be found throughout the tasting.
    • Taste
      Nice surprise: not violent for two sous. Honest, on vanilla and honey (Malt and rye, really?)
    • Finish
      Rather narrow, remains more in the mouth than in the throat - I understand.
