  1. Community Manager did not rate this whisky Community Manager

    In the early 2000s, there was a major shortage of bulk whisky and Arcus secured a supply of bulk whisky from Scotland. Afterwards, the bulk crisis was called off and the availability of bulk whisky from Scotland returned to normal. The surplus whisky was left in casks, until Atlungstad took over the product and bottled this curiosity, to make it available to whisky enthusiasts.

    Atlungstad Whisky is a unique blended whisky, which has first been matured in bourbon casks, then in 7000 litre French oak vats and finally in 500 litre sherry casks.

    Clarification: The whisky arrived at Arcus in June 2008, as a 3 YO blend. The blend was kept in the large wooden vats until 2012, then transferred to casks. The casks were from Williams & Humbert and had not been previously used (1st fill). This makes the whisky approximately 13, and not 16 years old. The label should be updated, and the information on vinmonopolet.no revised (source: whiskysaga.com).
