Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/07/2018

Appearance

(sample bottle batch 001, Seal of Schiedam Series: 73) Crystal clear.

Aroma

Freshly baked brown bread, nutmeg, clove and black pepper spice, freshly sawn sappy pine.

Taste

Spicy (cracked black pepper, clove, nutmeg), brown bready maltiness, piney hops and piney juniper.

Aftertaste

Bready spice continues through the long finish.

Overall

At 45% and with a spicy high rye content, this is far from an easy mass-market genever – if indeed any genever can be considered mass-market (watch this space). However, Old Duff 100% Maltwine is honest, genuine and well-made. Serving ice cold with beer knocks back the spice and makes for an interesting Boilermaker – particularly with IPAs.
