In November 2014, the second official bottle was released in our first product line, The Early Days Collection. It was named The Challenger. With more smokiness and elements of sherry, it challenged the notions of what a three-year-old whisky could deliver.
The second edition in the series The Early Days Collection has been composed differently than The Pioneer. Significantly smokier and with a clear element of sherry that fits well during the cooler months of the year. It is still a young whisky but challenges our beliefs about what just over three-year-old whisky has to offer. We mean that the Challenger stands up well to much older bottles. 5000 bottles were released on Systembolagets website on November 27th and sold out immediately.
