    Today the second batch of the Swedish SMÖGEN 100 Proof is up for tasting. The whisky was bottled at 57.1% vol. When it was six years old. It was matured in Sherry Quarter Casks and is neither chill-filtered nor colored. The whisky is browned to sherry-colored and has a medium viscosity in the glass.
    Should you like smoogen? For me, I can answer this with an unequivocal "yes". The complexity the distillery brings to this bottling is breathtaking. Little can be felt of its youth and whisky is a joy beyond measure. Only the high price of just under € 100 for 50cl spoils the joy. For a larger bottle, I would probably place an order, so it's a wish - initially.

      A very pleasant surprise the first time you sniff it in. The Smögen exudes a very nice sherry note, followed by warm smoke and dark fruity sweetness. The first contact is a pleasure and, despite its high alcohol content, nothing bothers us here. Sandalwood, old leather, damp tobacco, library, red currants, pickled plums, ripe peach, a hint of raisins, shortbreads. The variety of flavors is downright impressive.

      Diluted with water, the whisky is sweet on the palate, spicy and with a slight bitter note. Soft sherry tones, liquorice, herbs, some oak. The whisky looks clearly older than six years, quite complex and with a great play of aromas. There is a lot of chocolate and spice to discover and the whisky invites you to experiment with concentration.

      Medium to long finish when diluted, with a pleasant bitter almond, malty sweetness, berry fruit and sherry notes. Even in the finish, a great spectrum of aromas is retained and you can still deal with this great drop in detail.

    I am very pleasantly surprised and will definitely continue to watch Smögen. Unfortunately, the price is already set very high for half a liter. But I also liked it very much.
