Frysk Hynder Cask Strength. Image courtesy Frysk Hynder Distillery/US Heit.This single malt from Frysk Hyder Distillery (US Heit) in the Netherlands is matured for five years in Cognac casks. The nose has notes of fresh straw, cheddar cheese, cedar, and honey. The taste is astringent and slightly bitter with notes of licorice, bitter lemon, baking chocolate, and an earthy touch of sautéed mushrooms. The finish is long, dry, and astringent with lingering touches of licorice and bitter lemon. (November, 2018)
