Review by Eiktyrne

Colour

Dark golden.

Nose

Malt, vanilla, dried fruit – fine cask aromas.

Palate

Good malt notes, fruity, butter caramels, long finish with pronounced oak.

Note

In Norse mythology, Eiktyrne (Eikþyrnir in Old Norse, meaning “oak-thorny”) is a stag which stands on the roof of Valhalla, together with Heiðrún the goat, biting at the limbs of the tree Yggdrasil. From his horns, drops fall into the Hvergelmir spring in Niflheim, the world of darkness. From there, spring numerous rivers out into the world. These are described in Grímnismál in the Poetic Edda. Sid and Vid are two of the rivers.
