ABV: 46.1%
Formerly known as "The First Edition", Svensk Ek means "Swedish Oak", named for the fact that this is partially matured in casks from the island of Visingsö. The timber was originally intended for use as ship building for the Swedish Royal Navy.

Other reviews… this light-colored dram has honey-drenched crumpets, creamed butter, green tea taken in lemon groves, and hints of peppermint. Shredded lemon and lime peels are joined by a precise, concentrated wood spice note with ground ginger and black pepper. Dilution fattens the mouthfeel but flattens the citrus peel, leaving a smudge of light toffee and malt. Pleasant sipping for those long, Swedish summer days.
