COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BATCH 8 is blended in October 2011.
- Whisky pre used 71%
- New French Oak Medium Toast 28%
In flavour surely the most extreme La Trappe blend to date. Besides the full whisky flavour there is a lot of new oak in this blend, which makes this blend a unique marriage of wood-tannins and whisky associations.

bunget (552) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
375ml bottle aged for 2.5 years. A cloudy dirty dark copper body, minimal white foam. Aroma of old wine, whiskey barrel, yeast, fermented berries, wet basement and a light smokiness. Taste has a wow effect: caramel malt, yeast, subtle whiskey barrel, Scottish peat, whiskey, dried berries, noble red wine. Fabulous. And Im not a quadrupel fan. PS Thank you Boystout for this wonderful gift!

375 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Cork left with a light pop. Pours dark copper with a slight beige head. Theres a lot of whiskey in the aroma. Not sure its bourbon. It is. Med + body. Flavor has lots of smoke. Maybe it was scotch! Lots of treacle. Its all very smooth and finishing less than dry. Had to be scotch!
