    Flóki is Iceland's whiskey from the Eimverk distillery, founded in 2009. It is named after one of the first viking explorers of Iceland, which was Hrafna-Flóki Vilgerðarson, who used three beaches in his 9th century Island trip from the Faroe Islands to helped him find his way. You can also find them in the distillery log. Whiskey Flóki is produced only from Icelandic barley. It is a perennial and slowly growing barley grown in volcanic soil. Icelandic barley has a lower sugar content, so 50% barley has to be used more than usual. Even whiskey is made, this is the Sheep Dung Smoked Reserve, where instead of peat they use sheep's dung. We did not have a whiskey festival here. But we could have tasted Icelandic Young Malt. It matures in new oak barrels made of American oak. There are 600 pint bottles in the world.
    • Nose
      A great surprise at the first touch, a very original and atypical scent. A lot of fresh woodiness, then a wave of sweet (and pleasant) smell, where I recognize honey, candies, a bit of wind, all that is like candy and hazelnuts, milk chocolate. Excellent aroma, it can not be compared to any other whiskey and I really enjoy it. (88 b)
    • Taste
      The taste is to know youth. She quite reminds me of the golden plum, but it is sweeter. Wood, wind, is a little like the Gold Cock production. (83 b)
    • Finish
      I tasted at the Whiskey Festival 2017. Very unique and interesting whiskey, I'm so glad to have tasted it. As a supporter of the Viking series I appreciate more.
