Oude Molen Distillers Oude Molen VSOP
Brandy () Pot still 100% : Ages: 3 to 8 years


This exquisite VSOP is matured for at least five years in French and American oak barrels. This is substantially longer than a regular VSOP and enables the development of rich butterscotch and caramel flavours. A particularly delicate and balanced spirit, perfect for sipping neat. Caramel and fudge on the nose, with just a hint of citrus. The aromas are complemented by flavours of raisin, dried apple and hazelnut. A warm, lingering aftertaste completes this VSOP’s signature experience.

The candied orange in the dark chocolate lifts the citrus notes of the VSOP Cape Brandy and the bitterness of the dark chocolate gently enhances its nutty flavour. The resultant swallow is soft and sweet, a perfect match for a perfect Cape Brandy.
