A fascinating dram from Belgium, a nation which continues to assert itself on the world whisky scene. This distillery has existed in one form or another since 1637, making it likely one of the oldest distilleries still operational anywhere in the world.
Launched to celebrate the anniversary of the distillery, this is the fourth edition of of this single malt.
This limited edition whisky was aged for 33 months in former Bourbon barrels, before a 10 month finishing process in French muscat wine casks.
Muscat is naturally strong in flavours of citrus, coffee, raisins, fresh grapes and chocolate, perfect for adding complexity to a single malt whisky.
This dram serves up flavours of soft flowers, cereal sweetness, salted caramel, ripe fruit, woodspice, green grapes, apples and milky coffee.
Bottled at 46% ABV and without chill-filtration or colouration, this is a full bodied, warming whisky.
A youthful, vibrant dram, well worth trying.
