The 2020 edition of our classic bottling for Viking Line’s Cinderella Whisky Fair is, as always, a fully flavoured smoky whisky. We can also justifiably claim that it is the most exclusive to date.
The sixth edition of The Archipelago is a very limited single cask and only 300 bottles have been produced. The whisky is smoky and comes from barrel #2011-425 from our first real year of production, a classic 1st fill Bourbon barrel
The Archipelago is, like all bottles from High Coast, neither coloured or chill-filtered.
The 200-liter bourbon barrel was delivered from Heaven Hill, Kentucky. The barrel has been stored in a damp warehouse until October 2014 and lost some of its alcohol strength. From October 2014 to January 2020, the barrel was stored in a drier environment in warehouse number 3.
We recommend that The Archipelago be aerated in the glass for a while to come to its proper place. Feel free to add a few drops of water to highlight the aromas in the glass.
