A delicious Swedish single malt from Mackmyra.
Björksav is a dram that has been matured in a mixture of Bourbon casks, Oloroso Sherry casks, Swedish oak casks and, intriguingly, casks that previously held Swedish birch sap wine. Indeed, Björksav translates from Swedish as “birch sap” – fitting!
The result is a floral and unique whisky, with notes of apples, lemon grass, citrus, vanilla, peaches, piney birch, white grapes, maple syrup, fresh ginger and soft dried fruits.
Bottled at 46.1%, this is a medium bodied dram.
