A head to head between two Belgians this time.
In the left corner we have the Glenfarclas 1989 15yo (distilled 20.11.1989 and bottled 11.08.2005) single cask for Fisser at 60.2 %.
In the right corner we have the Glenfarclas 1989 14yo (distilled 04.1989 and bottled 10.2003) single cask for De Wit - Overijse at 58.7 %.
LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE !!!!
For Fisser: burnt amber
For De Wit: dark gold
For Fisser: pungent, a bold sherry attack yet it remains 'soft', overripe fruit, raisins, burnt brown suger. It's too sweet and too much on sherry for my taste.
For De Wit: lots of sherry but more delicate, fresh fruit, tanins too. I can't really explain why but I like this one a lot better than the one For Fisser. I can't stop sniffing this one (and then to say that I'am a peat aficionado!!).
For Fisser: exactly as in the nose but with a slightly more bitterness (nothing to dislike though!).
For De Wit: still lots of sherry, soft, fruity, some wood too, a bit of pepper, but the balance remains perfect IMHO.
Both are long (very long), sweet, very rich. Both are perfectly drinkable at cask strength without adding water. I like the single cask for De Wit much better than the one for Fisser. I know Serge Valentin (and a lot of Flemish whisky lovers too) was really thrilled by the latter one, but I don't care.
