Svensk Ek has a spicy character giving notes of sandalwood, dried ginger, black pepper, roasted oak barrel and herbs to our whisky. These spicy characteristics are complemented by fruity undertones with hints of vanilla and toffee from oak barrels, previously used to age Bourbon.
The Swedish oak barrels are made of oak from southern Sweden where oak trees have grown for centuries. Harsh weather conditions and dramatic seasonal shifts have left their marks on the trees, making them very durable. Before the trees become barrels staves are cut and then dried for at least a year. The barrels are then coopered by hand and heavily toasted on the inside, enabling the wood fibres to give the whisky more character.
Nose - Fruity with citrus, pear, apple and honey. A light oakiness with sweet, lightly toasted bread notes and fresh butter toffee.

A blend of Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whiskies which underwent a secondary maturation in Mossburn Cask Bill #2. These were specially built Oloroso Sherry Butts with heavily charred virgin American Oak heads which enhance the richness, depth and spicy vanilla flavours.
Blended from a careful selection of fine peated Single Malts distilled on the Islands of Scotland. Double barrelled for added depth and a mellow oak-spice finish. Second maturation in first-fill Bourbon barrels
Big, opulent Bourbon (in a bottle to match) with a nose that's full of bright lemon, pure vanilla layered over an almost cake-like seam of malt. There's more of the same on the palate alongside welcoming notes of muscovado sugar and spice.
Complex and well balanced as malt lovers have come to expect from Mossburn Speyside, with subtle banana and vanilla on the nose, and rum raisin undertones on the palate
