Zuidam Dutch Rye, Single Cask
Dutch Rye Whiskey
46% ABV, £40 for 70cl
What they say:
Our latest bottling is the phenomenal and unique Dutch rye. Boasting 100% rye content, as opposed to the rye/corn mashbills seen in the United States, this rye offers intense orange aromas and citric flavours. Big and bold at only 46% ABV this is a whisky for Scotch and Bourbon afficianados alike. To cap it all off, this is the world’s first single cask single rye whisky. Grab one while you can! ‘The rye is actually a really nice batch. In my opinion it is from one of the best batches that we have done thus far. It took some time to age but it has this creamy rich texture that is quite rare.’ Patrick Van Zuidam.
