    Mordred, King Arthur’s nephew, breaks his promise to the king, and occupies the kingdom of Camelot. He spreads the rumor that the king has died during the war, and intends to marry Guinevere.

    King Arthur realizes that his time has come, and only Bedivere survives in the war. King Arthur asks Bedivere to throw the Caliburn into the lake. Bedivere knows that once he throws the sword into the lake, it means the end of his king’s life. He gives up two times and lies to King Arthur that the Caliburn has thrown into the lake. However, his king knows that he is lying, and Bedivere comes to the lake for the third time, and makes up his mind tossing the Caliburn into the lake, and the Lady of the lake accepts the Caliburn.

    Tasting Note:
    You are able to feel a tasty flavor of cured meat in the beginning, and it transforms into a wood note of China fir. In addition, it comes with dried fruits underneath, and subtleness of menthol. The mouth feel is the salty cured fish, and accompanied by the impact of ash. The finish is slightly dry of wood and spices.
