The blind hand got this samples from my samples’ box and we have here a Belgian malt whisky finished in Oloroso cask. This malt whisky was distilled by Filliers, one of the first distilleries in Belgium to distill malt whisky, even before Belgian Owl.
“Not a bad finish but I am not really a big fan of finished whiskies, in this Goldlys there is just too much oloroso but in the wrong way”
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (88): more than average. honey, citrus, raisins, wood, leather, sulphur, vanilla.
Palate (87): powerful, oily. honey, leather, wood, sultanas, citrus, spices, wood.
Finish (86): longer than average. honey, wood.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Goldlys 12 Year Old Oloroso Finish (1st Release) with 87 points over 100.
Much in the way of Glenmorangie finishes… if you like them, go ahead, you will enjoy this dram… but I still have nightmare about damn LaSanta.
