Kintra Single Cask Collection

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Kintra whisky - Erik MolenaarKintra is a Dutch company managed by Erik Molenaar. Apart from the organisation of tastings and whisky workshops, they release around
8 single cask bottlings a year, all uncoloured and non-chillfilltered.

Originally only available in the Netherlands (in an ever expanding list of shops), they are now also available in Belgium (www.whiskyhuis.be).

The labels are colour-coded to recognize the whisky region. The most recent batch of Kintra bottlings was presented mid October 2010.

We’ll try a Bowmore 10yo,
a Macduff 25yo, Caol Ila 25yo and Glen Grant 36yo. Come back tomorrow for the first review.

  • WhiskyNotes: It says 'single cask Scotch whisky' on the label, so yes, technically it can even contain a bit of Girvan grain. Not that it matters a lot though.
  • kallaskander: Hi there, could be a teaspooned blenders cask... technically not a single malt then.... that seems more probable than letting an IB bring out the fir
  • Glenn Vanbellingen: If you put the 12 y origin at 40% head to head with the 12 y origin 46% you see it immediately or better you taste it immediately.
