Svensk Rök / Amerikansk Ek

The flavour of the smoke in Svensk Rök (Swedish smoke) is inspired by the old tradition of seasoning and preserving food by infusing it with juniper smoke.
In this second and limited edition of Svensk Rök, we have aged our smoky recipe exclusively in new casks of American oak. This gives the whisky prominent notes of vanilla and herbs – A welcome contrast to the bold notes of peat, juniper and tar.

Tasting notes

Nose

Smoke, spiciness, oak, fruits and herbs. Notes of peat, juniper, toasted oak and vanilla followed by a smoky and spicy aroma with saltiness, minerals, tobacco leaves, light tariness. Arrak treats, pear fudge, ginger and vanilla.

Taste

Peat, juniper, salt, definitively more smoky than what the nose is implying. A pleasent oaky spciness with vanilla, toasted oak, pickled figs and pear fudge. The texture is medium thick with oaky chewy notes.

Aftertaste

Spicy, smoky and oaky with notes of tar, tobacco leaves, bright notes of pickled figs and pear fudge.
