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.

  • Jorn: I agree, the first expressions tend to go up in value the most, - ofcourse -, but do you really think the Bowmore DC 2 will sink below 150,00 euro? N
  • WhiskyNotes: I tend to disagree. I would just wait for n°III and make sure you inform your favourite retailer that you want one beforehand. Buying a hyped product
  • Jorn: It's worth 150 allright, but mainly from a collector's point of view. That's where the market is. Like precious little stamps (Nothing wrong with that
