Special 09 ”Vildhallon” is from a mixture of casks, from bourbon to sherry and Swedish oak. It has been finished on casks that previously held wine ade from wild raspberries. Cask types for Special 09: Ex-raspberry wine, 1st-fill 100-litres och 200-litres Ex-Bourbon, 1st-fill och 2nd-fill 100-litres Ex-Sherry, 1st-fill och 2nd-fill 100-litres Ex-Sherry, 1st-fill 128-litres New Swedish oak casks, 100-litres New American oak casks, 200-litres and 128-litres Swedish oak, 1st-fill 100-litres Systembolaget purchased 10000 bottles. Notes according to Mackmyras webpage: Nose: The nose is filled with berry and spice with a complex palette of fruity citrus aromas, prominent sweet raspberry, ripe pears as well as spicy cask notes such as sandalwood, cedarwood, vanilla and toast. Taste: The palate is fruity, berry and spicy with raspberry, citrus, pear and roasted oak. The texture is slightly oily and medium rich. The aftertaste is long and berry with prominent spice.
