In Flames Selection
Anders Fridén, lead singer in the rock group In Flames, is a genuine whisky and fan of Box. Previously, Anders has selected barrels at Glenfarclas that have been bottled under the group’s name. Now it was time to repeat that success under Box label and we let Anders roam freely in the warehouses during an August day 2016.
He went to work with great enthusiasm and found an elegant bourbon barrel with character and personality. In Flames is a rock band with the whole world as its stage with a very large and dedicated fanbase. When just over 300 bottles were launched at Systembolaget’s ordering range, they were oversubscribed several times and were sold out in seconds … In other words, this exclusive bottling is unusually difficult to come by but really worth tasting.
A 200 liter 1st fill Bourbon barrel at 48,6 %abv holding peated spirit, which landed at a phenolic measurement of 15ppm.
In Flames contains no artificial colouring and is non chill-filtered.
Bourbon barrel has previously held Jack Daniels whiskey. Until October 2014, our casks have matured in a damp warehouse, where they lost slightly more alcohol than expected. Since October 2014 until bottling, the casks have been maturing in a dry environment in warehouse number 3.
Box In Flames Selection was bottled at cask strength 28/06/2016 giving us 359 bottles.
We recommend that Box In Flames Selection is allowed to breathe in the glass for a few moments to reach its peak. Add a few drops of water to help the aromas develop within the glass.
