Bright gold color. Inviting aromas and flavors of honey drizzled wheat biscuit, tobacco, frankincense, cocoa butter, allspice, and clove with a slightly chewy, crisp, fruity medium body and a hot, thought-provoking, long finish that exhibits impressions of toasted marshmallow, date nut bread, lemongrass, ginger-peach tea, juniper, cinnamon, and cedar finish. A delectable barrel-aged genever for slow sipping and carefully crafted cocktails.

Barrel-aged Genever from the Netherlands has been aged - often in small French oak barrels - for two to three years. Barrel aging adds complexity and results in genevers with a golden color and notes of yeast, pastry dough, raisin bread and crushed nuts. The finish is quite flavorful and earthy and quality is usually excellent. These are superb mixers for artisan cocktails.
