Description

We made a red wine gløgg with almonds, raisins and pumpkin seeds while we watched, in the distance, a thunderstorm approaching. On the palate it felt like a mythological battle between the Roman gods of Jupiter and Venus, the goddess not only of love but also victory – it was big and bold with a hint of funk, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Diluted, the thunderstorm passed, and a calmness set in with sweet frankincense, polished wood and clean leather saddles. To taste, a creamy texture, freshly brewed Assam black tea and a fruit tray bake. Following 12 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead.
