Eikthyrnir the hart is called,
that stands o’er Odin’s hall,
and bits from Laerad’s branches;
from his horns
fall drops into Hvergelmir,
whence all waters rise

ABV:

CL:
50 CL
VOLUME
98 BOTTLES
CASK:
Only 50 litres from the vatting of those 7 casks are used for this bottling. The remains of the vatting was blended with the contents of 2x 225 litre fresh Sauternes casks, and put back into the 7x 40 litre (now 2nd fill) ex-Ooloroso casks and the 2x 225 litre ex-Sauternes casks.
INGREDIENTS:
100% MALTED BARLEY
METHOD & MATURATION:
Traditional double distillation, stored in mainly French oak barrels.
COLOR:
Dark amber.

Nose

Sugary sweet sherry notes. Hints of something sour or bitter - is this the kveik influence - I believe it is. Then warm and inviting sweetness. Almost a little bourbon like on the nose.

Taste

Full bodied. Again rather sweet sherry notes. Creamy vanilla, earthy cinnamon. Malty with tropical fruits in the background.

Finish

Medium long finish. Hints of oakiness now. Not a whole lot of development.

“Love this whole experimental series. I was a little surprised that Jon Bertelsen (the master distiller at Det Norske Brenneri) chose to use small sherry casks that are this active. To me they seem to mask some of the influences of the malt and the kveik that Jon really wanted to showcase. I am sure he has a plan, so we shall just have to wait and see what happens next year!”

CASK:
The name “Quadruple” in this case does not refer to the number of distillations (it is double distilled), but rather to the number of different cask types used. It has been matured in virgin American oak, small bloodtub casks, ex-Brandy casks and casks that have previously held Montilla-Moriles PX sherry.
INGREDIENTS:
100% MALTED BARLEY
METHOD & MATURATION:
Traditional double distillation. Maturation 3 years.
COLOR:
Deep Copper
Nose
A warm hug of a nose (bear with me, please). Warm apple pie with cinnamon, white pepper and honey. Hints of toasted oak, strawberries and mixed fresh herbs.

Taste
Rich and full bodied mouthfeel. Quite spicy and complex. A full symphony of flavors straight off → peppers, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, fennel, thyme and mint. There is a fruity base of orchard fruits as well.

Finish
Medium long finish. Spicy all the way. Tending towards dry in character. More green notes towards the end.

Nose
Delightful, light and very approachable. Playful sweetness with marshmallows, icing sugar, and homemade caramel pudding. There's a hint of a bicycle tire repair kit way in the back, but it works as an added spice.

Taste
Very rich and fullbodied. Spicy and fruity in character. There is an unusually deep base of spices, way down low. Maybe more like a bass than a base. On top I find notes of assorted berries, vanilla and light caramel sauce.

Finish
Medium to long finish. Continues much as it started. Perhaps a little sweeter, with notes of honey now.

Very rich and complex. Cool, with a sugary sweetness. Dried fruits, mild spices and hints of mint.

Medium long finish. Greener still now, but it retains the rich and somewhat spicy fruitiness.
