  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 80 points Super Administrator

    Ever heard of Myken? Far out in the Norwegian Sea, this small island is home to 12 inhabitants - and the world's first Arctic whisky distillery! Partly matured in 50 l Hungarian oak casks, the nose of this young malt is fruity, spicy and yeasty. Gooseberries, mango and vanilla mix with juniper, cereals and hints of sawdust. On the palate, a briny punch of virgin oak dominates the vivid and youthful taste, followed by Greek yogurt, white pepper and unripe pears. Lemongrass, wood spices and espresso notes remain in the medium finish. Not bad for a 3-year-old!

    This was matured for 3 years in ex-bourbon barrels, then a further 10 month in 50 liter virgin Quercus petrea (Balkan oak) casks.
    Not bad at all. Considering the age of this I think there are good things on the horizon from this small distillery.

      Yellow fruit, citric, young fresh oak.
      Malty cereal and faint vanilla.
      This is young, and it smells young.
    • Taste
      78 78
      The young age is also clearly noticable on the pallate.
      Light and fresh, but with a very dominant oak.
      A little sweetness towards the end.
    • Finish

      Oak remains dominant through a medium lenght finish.
      Gentle spice.
