Review and Tasting
Sampled on 13/07/2018
(sample bottle batch 001, Seal of Schiedam Series: 73) Crystal clear.
Freshly baked brown bread, nutmeg, clove and black pepper spice, freshly sawn sappy pine.
Spicy (cracked black pepper, clove, nutmeg), brown bready maltiness, piney hops and piney juniper.
Bready spice continues through the long finish.
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.
