Spirit of Hven Single Malt

It’s Day 6 already! How time flies when you’re having fun! That said, time is irrelevant to omniscient supernatural beings such as myself. I’ve seen the fall of empires and the birth of new stars in the sky…

Speaking of stars, behind the sixth window of your Whisky Advent Calendars, you’ll find a dram of Swedish single malt from the Spirit of Hven distillery, named after Merak, a star in the Ursa Major constellation. It’s the second release in their spectacular ‘Seven Stars’ series of whiskies. It’s just the ticket if you’re keen for a winter warmer, which you may be looking for if you visit the tiny craft distillery on the island of Hven in the Öresund strait at this time of year!

Spirit of Hven Seven Stars No.2 Merak Single Malt Whisky

Spirit of Hven Seven Stars No.2 Merak Single Malt Whisky – 45%

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt for Spirit of Hven Seven Stars No.2 Merak Single Malt Whisky:

Nose: Candy apple and red fruit sweetness, followed by dark cherries, ginger, creamy vanilla and bison grass. A drop of water unlocks some fruity smoke.

Palate: Spiced up front, crushed black pepper and cinnamon joined by oily barley. It slowly turns sweet and juicy with a hint of citrus peels.

Finish: Crisp oak and subtle smoke.

Overall: A shining star of a dram, bright and warming. It certainly lives up to the high standards set by the Dubhe.
