Rum and Sherry Cask finished Swedish Single Malt
Moment Karibien is an elegant single-malt whisky, 75% of which was matured in casks that previously held Plantation Barbados & Jamaica rum with the remaining 25% finished in ex-Oloroso and ex-sherry casks. The whisky from the various casks that make up Moment Karibien are at least 8 years old and at most 12. They are matured 50 metres underground in Bodås Mine with meticulous care and attention. The whisky has been manufactured in a limited edition of only 4,137 bottles.
A fruity, spicy and buttery nose with notes of vanilla, toffee and roasted oak. Berries linger as aromas of rum, dried fruit and pear follow.
The palate is similarly spicy and fruity with warm notes of rum, Oloroso and oaky vanilla. The texture is slightly oily and incredibly smooth, leaving aftertastes of oak and vanilla.
