The Goldlys portfolio has expanded considerably. The latest in this series of Belgian whisky from double distillation (once in a pot still and once in a column still), matured on bourbon casks before getting a finish on first fill Amontillado sherry casks.

The nose reveals rye as the main ingredient, but it is a lot less sweet on the nose than the oloroso matured version. Some banana chips, gingerbread, oranges and even a hint of white chocolate. Drying, though.

The palate is somewhat creamy, fruity and spicy. Banana again. Less dry than expected. Typical spices such as nutmeg, ginger and a light pepper. Pleasant.

In the rather long finish, a slight bitterness emerges.

This is very nice, to be honest. Mucht better than the 12 Year Old Oloroso Finish. Around 40 EUR as well.
