Tasting Notes

"Whiskey drinkers who've had unaged or new make whiskey will be familiar with the aroma here. A beer-y aroma with just a little juniper on the nose. Taste-wise, the malt wine comes through a bit with the finish showing the peppercorns. Overall, the jenever is a bit confused. Not really suitable for sipping neat, you could try to mix it like you would a dry gin just cut back on any sugar you'd ordinarily add."
