This is a medium peated aged Swedish single malt whisky, made from grain to bottle in a small family owned distillery, Spirit of Hven, situated on the island of Hven, in the strait between Denmark and Sweden. This whisky is named Tycho’s Star, as a tribute to the most famous islander yet, the astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601). The whisky has dark, almost mystical notes of leather and licorice, embraced by a round scent of ripe plums. All this is elevated and refreshed by fragrances of apple and elder-flowers. Newly harvested hay and honeydew melons add to a soft finish.
