Official tasting notes for Einar's Whisky 4th edition.

Color: Deep

copper Nose: Very balanced for it´s age. It smells like the inside of our warehouse, it´s amazing! So much sweetness, brown sugar, caramel, bourbon vanilla and candied fruits. Roasted hazelnuts, wet sawdust and something salty/briny and menthol. Lots of malty goodness, some cashew chicken and cured ham, just beautiful.

Taste: Again, this beautiful malty taste with lots of sweetness. Heather and acacia honey with candied pineapple, saltwater taffy, red berries, and fresh figs. Some fortified wines, port and oloroso sherry and old brandy. Finishes of fresh with cut grass and green grapes.

Finish: Just a lot going on here. Very mellow and full bodied on one hand, and on the other hand, it´s kind off dry, almost Manzanilla sherry like. Oaky undertones with some bitterness, mandarin zest burnt caramel. Dried fruity tea and strawberry jam with some dark chocolate completing the finish.


The whisky

We believe that our climate with its everchanging weather is perfectly suited for storing barrels. Therefore, it is truly a dream come true that the release day has finally arrived.

We have patiently awaited our whisky to mature in different types of barrels. The first very limited batch has finally been released. This first batch is matured in the finest sherry & bourbon casks. Feedback from some of the industries most respected experts has been tremendous, and we are truly humbled to have received such appraisal. We look forward to many great years of Faroese craftsmanship where we will strive to perfect our products even more.

Our story

Located in the North Atlantic, close to the sea, Einar's Distillery is the very first distillery situated in the Faroe Islands. This distillery is the result of 132 years of craftsmanship and the challenge for Faroese perfection. Having brewed beer for more than a century, we wanted to pursue our dream of producing spirits. For more than 20 years, we have worked on the launch of Einar's Distillery. Our first bottle of Einar's aquavit was released in 2016. The first barrels of whisky were also stored in October the same year.

Einar's whisky is the first ever small batch whisky from the Faroe Islands
