COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BATCH 7 is blended in June 2011 and is the first batch (of two) that has matured in old whiskey barrels. These barrels come from different whiskey distilleries such as Bowmore, Tamdhu, Strathspey and Laphroaig (Johnstons). The aromas of the whiskeys have an obvious impact on the final flavor. This flavor is remarkable and clearly different from those of previous batches. Peat and burnt are more present, while wood and wood tannins are less obvious to spot. But the warming effect of the full, robust flavor the whiskey barrels passed on to our already beautiful Quadrupel, makes this batch maybe even the most tasty brewed to date.

Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration with a small whiskey alcohol burn. This is a good complex brew.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
12.7 fl oz bottle. Minimal light khaki / off-white head. Nice, opaque brown / red color. Little lace. Delicious, robust, woody dark fruit aromas, with a perfect amount of subtle whiskey all around. Light carbonation, and very smooth texture, with a nice, lightly warm aftertaste. Delicious lightly sweet, mildly warm savory taste. Complex, yet well-balanced brew. Very enjoyable, and well-suited for Easter Sunday (I think..).
