Victor is a limited release on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of Stokerij De Molenberg.
This edition matured exclusively in First Fill Bourbon barrels for 5 years. For this wooden anniversary we selected the finest barrels from our maturing rooms. These barrels are made from 100% American oak, a type of wood that releases pleasant notes of vanilla, honey and coconut during ripening. Victor is a wooden perseverance tribute, named after Victor Van Breedam who continued the family distillation tradition at the "Molenberg" until the start of World War I. He was then 70 years old. Since 2010 spirit has flowed again from the distilleries in De Molenberg distillery.
Esmeralda is a limited edition released to mark the 6th anniversary of De Molenberg Distillery.
The initial maturing of 30 months in Bourbon casks is followed by a lengthy 48-month finish in Madeira wine casks. Exactly 600 years ago, Portuguese explorers landed on the island of eternal spring and named it after the abundance of wood (‘Madeira’). This green emerald (‘Esmeralda’) in the Atlantic Ocean is famous for its fortified wines. The hints of raisins and nuts give this fruity, aromatic whisky an alluring elegance. The slightly sweetish taste is enhanced by mild acidity flowing on to a long, rich finish.
