Quercus IV Mongolica

The Quercus series is a journey of discovery through oak. In a series of exclusive bottlings, we explore the influence that various oak species have on the maturation of our whisky.

Quercus is a series where we explore the flavours that different oak species and regions give to the whisky. The first edition, Quercus I, Robur took a closer look at the European forest Oak, Quercus robur. The second in the series is the American white wine Quercus alba. The third edition was given the decisive character of the European mountain oak Quercus petraea. The fourth and last of the series, Quercus IV, has matured in the Asian oak Quercus mongolica.

  • Quercus IV Mongolica consists of 100% unpeated whisky, first matured in 20 liter Bourbon barrels for 3,53 years then transferred to 225 litre casks of  new Mongolian Oak, Quercus mongolica from Asia. The final product was then topped with 99 liters of 7,27 year old whisky from a first fill Quarter cask.

  • 200 liter Bourbon barrels (Quercus Alba), delivered empty direct from Kentucky. The barrels of Quercus mongolica, heavily roasted at 225 liters, are bound in Spain, then controlled in Sweden at Thorslundskagge
    The Quarter Barrel was delivered from Speyside Cooperage.

    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.

    The Bourbon barrels were emptied of its contents and the whisky was transferred to twelve 225-liter barrels of new Asian oak (Quercus mongolica).
    The barrels were emptied 09/08/2019 and 12/08/2018 into the mixing tank and the alcohol content was adjusted to a predetermined 50.8% in connection with bottling.
    Quercus II Alba was bottled in 12/08/2019 and 13/08/2019 giving us 6228 bottles.

    We recommend that Quercus IV Mongolica is allowed to air in the glass for a while to fully enjoy it.Add a few drops of water to lift the aromas from the glass.
