In the world of single malt whiskey, the Resenären stands out as a unique and captivating expression. Crafted with precision by distiller Jan Rothman, this limited edition spirit embarks on a journey that leaves its mark on every sip. With a price tag of 568 kr for a 50 cl bottle and an alcohol content of 41%, Resenären promises an adventure for the palate.
Sourced from Trolle Ljungby for barley, Fjälkinge for malted grains, and Torna Hällestad for wört, Resenären’s journey begins with the careful selection of ingredients. Distilled in a pot still under the skilled hands of Jan Rothman in Cognac, then the whisky finds its way to the Sandby Mosse region for aging. Resting on Sandby Mosse for 7 years, the spirit matures in lightly toasted French oak casks before a unique twist – final aging in applewood casks. Each stop on Resenären’s path leaves an indelible mark on its character.
Tasting Notes: Upon pouring, Resenären presents a nose of vibrant apple, citrus, and subtle herbaceous notes like rosmarin. Served at room temperature or over ice, the initial taste is surprisingly sweet, with a hint of woodiness and distinct apple flavors. The mouthfeel is light but clear, offering a unique sweetness more akin to Calvados. The finish, while short, leaves a slight tingling sensation and echoes the lingering taste of apples.
The Experience: Resenären is not just a whiskey; it’s an experience. Its sweetness may catch you off guard, but the delightful surprise is the subtle smokiness reminiscent of a Calvados, adding layers of complexity to the overall profile. This limited edition release is not just a beverage; it’s an Avec that perfectly complements post-dinner coffee.
Final Verdict: Resenären Single Malt Whiskey is a testament to the artistry of Jan Rothman and the influence of its diverse journey. Priced at 568 kr, it’s a worthy addition to any whiskey enthusiast’s collection. Whether savored neat, on the rocks, or as a delightful addition to a crafted cocktail, Resenären offers a memorable taste adventure that transcends typical whiskey expectations.
