Wild about Whisky: Eureka! Two passionate beer and whisky enthusiasts in Nelspruit have created the elixir of life and what a precious little gem it is.....
We have been following the progress of this whisky, created by Andre Otto and Riaan de Jager, from its new make infancy to its obscure emergence as a full blown single malt whisky.... Tweedronk Single Malt Whisky Distilled 24 Oct 2009 Bottled 27 Oct 2012 Matured In A 25 Litre Brandy Cask 52% Bottle no.20 of 22 This nose is a dessert banquet fit for a Scottish king....Stewed red berries with a sprinkling of raisins, sultanas and vanilla, chocolate coated strawberries with a side plate of brandy snaps, ginger spice and molten dark toffee sauce. A little thin on the palate but the huge, bold, red fruit marinade and peppery spice more than makes up for the lack of body, with a finish that is warm and grapey, cabernet style. A splash of water opens up the fruit, offering prunes and sweet dates on the nose and sweetens the berry potjie on the palate. 85 A hugely impressive dram for one so youthful. Well done guys, you should be immensely proud of this one...
