The Festival 2015
The second festival bottling, 2015, was in the same spirit as the successful first, final maturation in new charred oak barrels. But this edition is somewhat smokier and has Swedish notes combining with the American oak casks.
This year’s edition has a marked smokiness and of course a clear character from a new charred oak. A significant difference is that all the barrels this time are 100-130 liters in size and the age is slightly higher with an average of 4 years. Two out of five barrels are made of Swedish oak. It is a young whisky but, despite its age, it carries a maturity that can only be created through expertise and skilled cask management.
