Smögen Bourbon Single Cask, 60.9%

Price: $110 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Again, this uses malt peated to 45 ppm, which is evident by the nose of salty beach bonfires, though there is an intense, honeyed sweetness to enjoy: golden syrup bars, toasted English muffins, stroopwafel, and a cool line of spearmint. Although the alcohol roars loudly, there is honey and banana, some Tabasco heat, and flashes of orange. Water adds creaminess to the nose, but the structure doesn't respond so well. Tough it out at full strength. (295 bottles)SEK 953
