Kintra Single Cask Collection

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted 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.
