Anmerkungen

This cask has been hand-picked for Swedish Members of the Society and given a special label treatment to celebrate this adventurous dram and our ever-growing community of whisky-explorers across Sweden.

We took an expected expedition into maritime scenes as rock pools rolled over seaweed and shellfish, whilst from a distant hill came wafts of burning gorse. Layers of sweetness cascaded over the seaside fantasy, conveyed by fresh malt drizzled with heather honey and a squeeze of baked orange. The smell of malt drew us into a peat-fired kiln with medicinal overtones that wrapped us in a shroud of comfort. The palate took an unexpectedly sweet turn with a sugary bombardment of maple syrup, honey and treacle. Through the sticky glaze emerged complex layers of smoked salmon dressed with pink peppercorns and roast chicken adorned with rosemary, sage and thyme, joined by crispy baked stuffing. After spending 6 years in a refill ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a secon-fill hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
