    [June, 2017]  A hard to find distillery (outside Sweden) and an even rarer private bottling, that is what I call a rarity - so thanks for the sample, Patrik!

    The colour is amber and the texture shows fast fat legs with tears.  The nose is on a honey-sweet and fruity bourbon-ish profile with significant but pleasant wooden notes (despite its young age, so the 40 liter cask worked fine).  Some herbal and spicy aromas too and all in good balance, not too bad!  It arrives in the mouth hot and peppery (no wonder at 61,9% abv) and nicely coating, not bad either!  The taste offers a typical modern bourbon style with vanilla-sweet, fruity and wooden flavours, again nicely balanced.  The finish is long and spicy with no bitter or drying moments.  Water opens up both the nose and taste further and takes away most of the hot mouthfeel (as expected) but it adds some bitter wooden notes to the finish.

    To be honest, I like this dram better than most of the Bourbons I had so far - a nice new distillery profile indeed...
