Flóki Beer Barrel Finish Icelandic Single Malt Whisky. Image courtesy Eimverk Distillery.Iceland’s only malt whisky distillery makes this single malt using Stout casks from one of the local breweries, and the nose has a good hoppiness with a hint of lemon zest and touches of soft oak, toasted caramel, and muted spices. The taste has a good balance of baking spices and sweetness with hints of hops, lemon zest, and crystallized ginger leading into the finish, which is long, tart, and vibrant. Very nice! (March, 2020)
