Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/10/2017


Crystal clear.


Brown bread, piney juniper and black pepper with very faint rubber and barbeque charcoal.


Piney juniper, cracked black pepper spice and brown bread with faint clove.


More piney juniper, brown bread and black pepper spice with light clove.


Bready and spicy with piney juniper. Light but warming clove. Piet van Leijenhorst has produced a superbly-balanced example of a 100% moutwijn genever.
