Rutte – Oude 5

Rating: 4 out of 10

Nose: spirity, newmake-ish. Vanilla, unripe fruits, grain. Slightly sickly fatty smell. Unpleasantly ‘in your face’. Smells a lot like newmake spirit, even though it spent 5 years in a cask.
Mouth: slightly sweet, quite dry. I really don’t like this style of Jenever. It has a spicy, almost rye like character, but it lacks the mellow notes too make it palatable.
Finish: short, spicy and dry.
