High Coast 63 Sweden 70cl / 63%
Donated by Roger Melander.
A bottle of High Coast 63 Single Malt Whisky from Sweden. This peated whisky was matured in the far end in warehouse #3, exactly where the 63rd parallel cuts through the distillery. Using malt peated to 63ppm, this whisky was matured for 63 months, 63 decimetres above ground in 63 litre first fill bourbon casks, fermented for 63 hours and bottled at 63% ABV.
High Coast distillery began production in 2010 under the name Box Destilleri. The name is taken from the distillery's location on the Swedish coast on the Gulf of Bothnia. High Coast operates seven days a week with just three production staff, producing one or two batches per day of peated and unpeated spirit. Distillery Manager Roger Melander has experimented with different malts, yeasts and fermentation times, with particular focus on cask types and how to harness the effect of Sweden's highly variable temperature during maturation.
