2017 Berry Bros. & Rudd Myken, Cask No. 15, Whisky, Norway (61.4%)
About this SPIRIT
When it was built Myken Distillery was the most northern distillery in the world, producing the first ever Arctic whisky. Situated on a tiny island 32 km from the Norwegian mainland, Myken, led by founder Roar Larsen, produces a malt just as rugged as its surroundings. The distillery experiments with yeast strains, barley varieties and even uses desalinated sea water for its production.

The first ever independent bottling from this tiny distillery is of their lightly peated spirit at 8ppm. The nose is initially very gentle and takes a little time to open up, but those with patience are rewarded with light green fruit, bonfire ash and zesty lime. The palate is lusciously peated, medicinal and coastal with notes of wild garlic and sooty chimneys. The peat pops out even more on the long ashy finish, as one contemplates whether this is perhaps the Norwegian cousin of Longrow or Talisker, and whether the west coast of Norway will soon rival the west coast of Scotland.
