Oude Molen Rene Single Cask Brandy

A stunningly different and complex gem from Oude Molen. One of 109 casks is set aside from the rest for single barrel bottling. My rating 19/25

Serving Suggestions

Definitely neat in a snifter. This is an exceptional brandy, quite different in character from the standard Cape potstill palate and aromas. Would pair so nicely with so many sweet and savoury dishes, with this brandy the sky is the limit. One you have to try.
