“Passion” is the name of a single cask series from Belgian Owl distillery, with each cask specially selected by master distiller Etienne Bouillon.
Each of these casks begin the same way, with Belgian Owl’s 100% sustainably produced and fair trade Belgian malted barley. The casks are first-fill ex-Bourbon.
This has produced a delicious single malt with a superb clarity of flavour. The spirit is youthful and vibrant, with notes of banana, toffee, sugared barley, grassy grains, tropical fruit and dense vanilla custard. Despite its youth, it maintains a good balance between cask and spirit.
Bottled at 46% ABV, and without either chill filtration or artificial colouration, this is a natural dram with plenty of character.
Belgian Owl’s passion for creating superb whisky is clearly on show with this dram, an excellent single cask offering from this exciting distillery.
