  • TASTING NOTES
  • REVIEWS
Nose
Christmas cake, dried fruits, homemade caramel pudding with real™ caramel sauce. This might all seem a bit dark and heavy, but it really is not. You see it is balanced with a layer of lighter notes, including vanilla, rowan berry and raw nuts.

Taste
Smooth-ish mouthfeel, it does have a little roughness to it, but still well on the side of pleasant. Very nutty and relatively sweet. I find the same homemade caramel pudding with sauce here, as well as the dried fruits. baked apples covered in rich honey.

Finish
Medium long finish. The sweetness grows heavier and thicker now. More honey, mixed with dark chocolate rather than caramel. Still very nutty - unsalted peanuts primarily, but also chopped almonds.

“By far the best Norwegian single malt whisky released to date. I certainly do like the direction this is taking. Score (87/100)”

  • TASTING NOTES

Nose
Sweet, red berries and grape juice. Dirt track through an Autumn wood, wet leaves and the smell of the air just as a heavy rainfall is about to start. Deep cinnamon notes - think raw cinnamon sticks. Hints of licorice. Leave it in the glass and it will turn absolutely divine. The comforting warmth of the cinnamon stick bonfire is soo good.

Taste
Rich and full-bodied and somehow both oily and tending towards dry at the same time. The cinnamon sticks are still with us. White pepper, ginger, licorice and just a little more than just a touch of chili. Caramel and vanilla.

Finish
Medium finish. Chili, milk chocolate. Soothing green notes as well now - mint, grass and tomato plant. Golden syrup and soft oakiness.

“Needless to say, perhaps, but this whisky was never officially released. With this few bottles they decided to keep this for special tastings and to present something unique at Norwegian whisky festivals. As it is it adds to the recent streak of very fine efforts from Det Norske Brenneri, and shows that Norway is becoming a force to reckon with on the Nordic whisky scene.

  • TASTING NOTES

Nose
Soft and delicate sherry nose. There is a soft rubbery note at first, but it is mild and does crawl into hiding after a few minutes in the glass. What is a lot more noticeable is a lovely mix of spices; cinnamon, cardamom, white pepper and nutmeg. Accompanying the spices I also find malt, nuts, oranges and hints of oak. Leaving it in the glass for a while opens it up further. It is quite rich and full. Well integrated, and it feels mature despite its young age.

Taste
Full bodied and sweet. The sherry influence is immediate here, as it was on the nose. Rather peppery on the delivery. Digging a bit deeper I pick up on something floral, with a hint of vegetables. The sweetness is a mix of dried fruits, fresh apples and sugar.

Finish
Full and rich on the finish as well. Medium long and warm. Cinnamon, white pepper, dark chocolate, caramel, nut shells and oak. It becomes dry towards the end, but at the same time it is mouth-watering.

“Resultatet av Eiktyrne er strålande og det er sjølv etter så kort tid med lagring. Det er truleg ein av dei få produkta som eg har smakt som gir ei så tydeleg aromafinesse mellom nase og munn. Aroma harmonera og er flott integrert med kvarandre.”
