COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inmiddels hebben we vol trots BATCH 16 gepresenteerd. Deze Quadrupel Oak Aged heeft een diepe bronzen kleur met een schuimkraag als van amber. De geur wordt gedomineerd door een mengeling van hout en honing. Hierna volgen wijnachtige aroma’s, waarna een port/sherryachtige geur blijft hangen. De smaak is erg zacht en vol. Voor een Quadrupel is deze batch vrij droog en door de lange rijping op eiken- en accasia-barriques mooi afgerond. De lagertijd van 2 jaar is voldoende, hoewel deze batch door zijn volle smaak gegarandeerd nog jaren goed op dronk zal zijn als deze goed wordt bewaard. Naast de invloed van rode wijn- en brandyvaten kent deze Oak Aged ook Oloroso-invloeden. De hop is nauwelijks meer aanwezig, maar de tannines van hout en wijn zorgen voor een aangename bitterheid. Het verfijnde bouquet komt het best tot zijn recht als deze batch wordt geschonken op een temp. van 16-18°C. Batch 16 is sinds 22-03-2014 in de Kloosterwinkel te verkrijgen. Voor Batch 16 is de volgende verdeling van toepassing: Type In Batch Brandy 36,5% Oloroso 27% Nieuw Eiken Medium Toasted 10% Nieuw Eiken High Toasted 10% Late Bourgondy 10

Bottle. Pours quite hazy reddish chestnut, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma of sherry, toffee, bourbon, vanilla, date, raisin. Flavor is quite sweet, sherry, dark dried fruits, minimal bitterness. Medium body. Definitely oxidized, but since I just bought it last week that ain’t my fault. Still a solid quad. Some lingering heat.
