Eiktyrne Toll og Holl Refill Sauternes Finish

This is the second new single malt release from Norwegian distillery Det Norske Brenneri this week. Thy also release the Eiktyrne Tyn & Vin Brandy Finish on Friday. So, the Eiktyrne Toll og Holl Refill Sauternes Finish is a limited release of 353 bottles. It has been matured for a little of three years in total, in a mix of Pedro Ximenes, small sherry and fresh brandy casks, and then finished in a 2nd fill Sauternes cask.

You can buy 50 cl bottles of the Eiktyrne Toll og Holl Refill Sauternes Finish starting this Friday at NOK 629,70 (10488502).

Nose: Loads of berries. Rowanberries, gooseberries, blackcurrant and a light wine like character. Not very sweet at all. Polish, and leather furniture. Hints of oak. With time more spicy and rich.

Taste: Medium body. Quite dry and with a tempered sweetness. Loads of spices, but hard to pinpoint in detail. With time and subsequent sips I detect licorice, white pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Finish: Medium long finish. Borderline astringent and then it lets go, and I'm left with a sweet and delicate finish with rich notes of sherry. It remains slightly bitter with notes of berries.

Comments: Another fine, young Norwegian whisky.
