Just Landed: Smögen Primör Revisited

We have just received a shipment from Smögen which includes the new Smögen Primör Revisited.

Established in 2010, Smögen bottled their first whisky, Smögen Primör in 2013, from a series of quarter casks. Those heavily roasted French Oak casks were refilled with Smögen’s trademark heavily peated spirit, and have now, after six years maturation, been bottled as Primör Revisited at cask strength of 68.2%. This is a big powerful whisky with peat that is earthy on the nose, but on the taste is peppery as it dances on your tongue. 

For independent reviews check out Malt Review, and in Swedish, check out En Liten Whiskyblogg and Tjeders Whisky. Look for Smögen Primör Revisited at Hedonism Wines, Gauntleys of NottinghamMaster of Malt, Nickolls and Perks, Shop4Whisky and The Whisky Exchange


Smögen Primör Revisted 68.2% Vol.
