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.
