Overall: Let me start by saying when I visited Amsterdam a few years back, I was pressured by a Liquor Store Owner into purchasing a Zuidam Dutch Whisky Sample Box. I'm actually glad to have picked that up as it really opened my eyes to whisky from other regions. Since, I've never turned away a whisky based on which country it was distilled. Back to the 12 Year Review before I take more trips down memory lane. Overall, I really appreciate the age statement on this release. The flavors all compliment each other and the overall experience is quite nice. I can find myself sipping on this with a meat and cheese board on a late spring or early summer day, but also by the fire during a chilly autumn evening with a cigar. Thank you to Zuidam for the opportunity to try this particular offering.
