Dàlvve

Dàlvve  bottle

700ml, 46% ABV

Dàlvve – meaning Winter in Sami (the local dialect for Northern Sweden) – is the quintessential experience of Box. Its semi–peated nature reflects the flavour of the changing seasons in the unique landscape around Box Distillery. These seasons have a profound effect on the whisky’s development in first fill ex-bourbon casks and the resultant flavour transports you to the banks of the Ångermanälven River. Non chill-filtered and uncoloured.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Fresh pine forests and wood-burning stoves lead. Sweet vanilla mingles with rich peat smoke, with a core of stewed apple, sweet butter and peppery spice following. Hints of smoked meat and damp blankets hide underneath, giving a rich background.

Palate

Soft and rounded on the palate, led by a burst of unexpected sweetness. That fades to reveal sour fruit and soft peat smoke, with peppery spice rolling in behind. A candied sweetness builds from the centre and the cycle begins again.

Finish

Green leaves, hints of charcoal and wood smoke, fresh and crisp apples, and a twist of lemon zest.

Comment

Perfectly balanced smoke and sweetness, with a touch of mountain forest, pine and clean air.
