A Swedish whisky, made in a Swedish way. Svensk Ek, which translates to "Swedish oak," is a single malt whisky that utilizes barrels of centuries-old (yes you guessed it) Swedish oak. 10% of the whisky in Svensk Ek has been aged in Swedish oak casks, which certainly appears to have introduced some unique properties to this dram. The character is spicy, with notes of roasted oak and herbs. The spiciness is complemented by fruity undertones. Svensk Ek represents a whisky with a highly modern outlook. Skål!
