Box Destilleri Tasting Notes

Posted: July 1, 2016 in Sweden, World Whiskies & Spirits

Box Single Malt Whisky, The 2nd Step Collection 01 51.1%

Tasted: June 2016

Nose: A beautiful tropical fruit bomb! Sugar sprinkled apricot, melon, pear and apple, followed by crisp green apple, gooseberry, lime and honey. Suddenly a gentle thread of lightly medicinal and smoky peat appears.

Palate: Slightly darker with more malt character and dark honey. The tropical fruit notes are still present though and begin to emerge along with hints of barley, lime and green apple. The slightly medicinal peat begins quite quietly but builds up a head of steam!

Finish: Intense and chewy with coffee coated banana and dark, moist, earthy peat, liquorice and a touch of treacle. Great finish!

Conclusion: A truly world class whisky.
