I wanted to give this Genever a try as this aged veriety is much closer to whisky and completely different from the young Genevers. The distillery's approach is also interesting. It is independently owned and uses traditional methods, the ingredients are ground using traditional wind mills, aging happens in American oak casks, and no coloring is added. The result is a very smooth Genever, the taste develops in distinct stages first a mix of caramel and vanilla then almond the finish reminds me of green apples.

I bought a bottle of this for my father, who knows Genever from the olden days, and he really enjoyed it.
This is *totally* different from the more common and more expensive 'young' style Genevers like Ketel 1 and Bols. Taste-wise it has a lot in common with whisky: very richly flavored, with a very thick palate. Great value for money, and well worth a try.

My first Genever and this is simply delightful. The smooth blend of juniper flavours with hints of rye are very moreish, and a great alternative to a single malt. Will certainly try more after this.
