Single Malt Whisky Rök
This whisky is matured on casks from Islay in Scotland, and in casks made from chestnut. The result is notes of dried fruit and a saltiness balanced by citrus and a spicy sweetness. On the nose as well as on the palate, there is a light but distinct peatiness with streaks of straw and herbs.

Maturing on chestnut barrels is unusual. But it packs this whisky with aromas and flavours almost to bursting point. The first things you notice are the hints of dried fruit, with raisins taking center stage. In the finish, there is a more profound sweetness from honey and vanilla, as well as a distinct wooden character from the casks.
Maturation on small casks or småfat (130 liters) gives the whisky more contact with the cask and a faster maturation. In this, we have mixed the contents from three different kinds of casks: Islay casks, sherry casks, and chestnut casks. The Islay casks add peaty notes and saltiness, while the sherry- and chestnut casks add fruit.
Evidens Black Wheat has been aged in quarter casks previously used to produce Oloroso Sherry, a fortified wine from southern Spain. Black wheat gives rise to a symphony of flavours. Roasted almonds take the lead, filling the palate with their delicate blend of sweetness and nuttiness. Burnt straw and cedar add a unique depth reminiscent of an autumn bonfire on the farm.
This whisky has been aged throughout its maturation in barrels that previously contained Sauternes wine. Generous tropical fruit flavours dominated by stone fruit, honeydew melon and pineapple. A balanced flavour of fruit with straw elements and a slightly sweet finish that lingers until the end.
