On 23 November we are celebrating the anniversary of the Molenberg Distillery with an Anniversary Edition whisky. This box compiles three of these editions:
- Muscad’Or (2017) was first matured in Bourbon casks for 33 months before spending 10 months in French muscat wine casks. Consequently, this golden whisky has a velvety attack, followed by developing aromas of apricot, nectar and ripe fruit with a gently lingering finish of sweet spiciness.
- Victor (2018) has matured for five years exclusively in First Fill Bourbon casks. For this ‘wood’ anniversary, we selected the finest casks from our maturation chambers. These casks are made entirely of American oak, a type of wood that releases pleasant hints of vanilla, honey and coconut during the maturation process.
- Esmeralda (2019) came about after an initial maturing of 30 months in Bourbon casks and followed by a lengthy 48-month finish in Madeira wine casks. The hints of raisins and nuts give this fruity, aromatic whisky an alluring elegance. The slightly sweetish taste is enhanced by mild acidity flowing on to a long, rich finish.
