50% 1st fill casks.
40% 128 litre bespoke sherry casks, adapted from US casks and then sherry-matured in their Bodas mine.
10% Swedish oak that’s used to make 30 & 100 litre casks.Historically there was no indigenous oak in Sweden. As a necessity, the Swedish Navy [300+ years ago] acquired saplings from Limousin to plant & grow oak for the expansion for their fleet. The saplings grew but due to the Swedish climate & soil, the trees end up tall and skinny. Hence the small & limited usage of Swedish oak for maturation.

N: Similar profile to the Bruks but appearing a bit younger, naked, brasher. However, this appearance totally reverses later on. It relaxes with time, now creamier=oilier with notes of mint sauce, oily darker/more subtle vanilla, waxy-mushroom pate, ginger and holy basil [tulsi], The oily, fungal sherry only arises later on. Well married.
T: Sharper barley=oak oils, though changing with water towards tighter yet soft sweet putty and spice.
F: Longer finish than the Bruks.
C: The extra bit of ageing certainly shows, and pays off with more depth & length.Scores a C[+]
