This is a medium peated well matured Swedish single malt whisky, made from grain to bottle in the small family owned distillery, Spirit of Hven, situated on the island of Hven, in the strait between Denmark and Sweden.
This whisky is named Tycho’s Star, as a tribute to the most famous islander yet, the astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601). The whisky has dark, almost mystical notes of leather and licorice, embraced by a round scent of ripe plums. All this is elevated and refreshed by fragrances of apple and elder-flowers. Newly harvested hay and honeydew melons give a soft finish.
The name Tycho’s Star refers to the supernova that Tycho Brahe observed in the asterism Cassiopeia 1572. He called it “De Nova Stella,” and made a term for the expression Nova, that nowadays are used to describe new stars.
Tycho's Star is bottled at site on Hven at 41,8 vol%, without carbon- or chill filtering, no coloring or additives. It is organic certified, completely natural, as should be. Every bottle is individually numbered and controlled before being waxed by hand.
