”Fjordboen” or ”people living in inlets” (translated from Danish), is the unpeated, Sherry matured expression from Thy Whisky.  It is 3-4 year old Oloroso Sherry casks, mixed with a Bourbon barrel. Only 1.982 bottles were made. Dark dried fruits and hints of dark chocolate in the smell. Some classic Oloroso spices as well.

Great mouthfeel, as the dried fruits overpowers your palate. Again, I get loads of dark chocolate, here in the taste. The finish is full of spices and oak, with some sweetness coming forward as well. Perhaps a bit of sulfur, but nothing major (for me – but I’m not sulfur sensitive).

Quite impressive to make such a deep Sherry influenced whisky, in such short time! This is just good from start to finish, with no surprises from nose to taste to finish. Very well put together! I will give this 84/100 (21/21/21/21).
