A true field-to-glass whiskey from the Nordic reaches of that state! Born of non-GMO AC Hazlet Winter Rye and Minnesota 13 Heirloom Corn planted and harvested by head distiller Michael Swanson, Roknar is milled, fermented and distilled in very small batches. Aged one year in 10-gallon charred oak barrels and finished in a combination of Oloroso sherry and Cognac casks, Roknar marries aromas of brown sugar and cinnamon with vanilla bean, roasted almonds and freshly sawn oak. These scents are precisely restated as flavors on a butter-smooth palate, with additional notes of smoked ham and balsa wood. Finishing with a hint of soft-baked pretzels, Roknar lingers cheerfully with a warming note of star anise.
