COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have meanwhile proudly presented BATCH 22. Oak Aged Batch 22 was mainly matured on German Single Malt barrels. This whisky is considerably smoother and less ‘turfed’ than its Scottish counterparts, as a result of which batch 22 is much smoother than the previous batches that were matured on whisky barrels. In addition to the malty and smoked aroma, banana, vanilla, honey, apple and blossom scent can also be distinguished. The whisky is clearly present but does not dominate, which means that La Trappe Quadrupel can still clearly be recognised. This results in a balanced fusion of flavours, releasing aromas of almond and smoke. Batch 22 is full of flavour and very complex; with every sip, new flavour associations seem to appear. The aftertaste clearly shows the alcohol, together with the bitterness of wood tannin, which lingers for a while. This may not be the most extreme batch, but thanks to its complexity and overall balanced flavour, we can really recommend it. Its fine bouquet is best savoured when this batch is served at a temperature of 16-18 °C (61 – 64.5 °F). BATCH 22 was distributed as follows: Used Whisky barrels (Single Malt) 83,3%; Acacia wood (medium toast) 8,3%; New Oak Medium Toast 4,2%; New Oak High Toast 4,2%.

Bottle enjoyed at home

Dark brown, creamy tanned head. Smell of dark fruits, raisin, dades, oak, sherry, toast, whisky vanilla, alot of complexity. Heavy sweet, candise sugar, dark fruits, dried fruits, alot of caramel, honey, vanilla, oak , toast and whisky. Maybe a bit too sweet for my likings, but it got nice intense flavors; all in all a very good beer.

klm1 (1899) - Bled/SF, - AUG 18, 2017
Pours deep amber, slightly hazy with foamy off-white/ beige head. Aroma: malts with notes of honey, toffee, toasted bread, candy sugar, banana like esters, woody tannins, vanillin, gentle whiskey note. Flavor follows aroma with notes all mentioned by aroma. There’s also gentle grassy hop note, also noticeable by basic version. Finish is dry, slightly astringent and with noticeable whiskey - at the moment port wine like - alcohol note. Body is medium to full, texture smooth, carbonation is medium to high.

Icedwarf (1840) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2017
Donker roodbruin bier zonder schuim. Smaak is krachtig, complex en intens met iets van karamel, vanille, zoete druiven, anijs, drop en zoethout. De whisky komt in de smaak niet echt terug. Evenwel een echte aanrader.

De geur valt mee, de smaak is lekkerder dan de geur. Een van de beter batchen. Meevaller
