Master Yack, our resident self-appointed guardian angel for the preservation and enjoyment of brandy/cognac shares his experience and rating of Oude Meerster Demant. Be sure to let us know your experiences too.
The Makers say:
NOSE: chocolate, nutmeg, apricot and pineapple
TASTE: apricot, pineapple, tobacco and oak
FINISH: Smooth and easy to drink
Master Yack says:
Hoyi hoyi bathathe!!!!(Kasi terminology for when something brilliant and unexpected happens from someone unexpected). This is what I felt from this brandy. Created in honour of their jubilee year this 8 year old pot still does things to me inside that are inconceivable to the mind.
NOSE: Fresh fruits with hints of spiciness, with undertones of chocolate
PALATE: Imagine the pull of a good fruit flavoured cigar which is what you get here with light hints of wood
FINISH: Smooth and easy to swallow.
One to be enjoyed with two blocks of ice for the ultimate experience.
