Belgian Owl 4 year old, cask L140211, 46%

Price: $68.00 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

This is very different to previous Belgian Owl bottlings, but it's important because it takes the distillery to a new place. There are hints of Glen Garioch or Springbank here, with green banana skin, raw barley, and some peppery tomato. The fruity center just about survives the onslaught, but it's not an easy ride. €47 Currently not available in the U.S.
