WHISKEY AIKAN EXTRA COLLECTION BATCH N°3 43° 50CL
AIKAN means "marriage" in Arawak, the language of the first inhabitants of Martinique. AIKAN is a meeting between two continents (Europe and America), two climates (continental and tropical), two worlds of spirits (whiskey and rum.)
After distillation in Scotland and three years of ageing, this whiskey continues to mature in the tropical climate of Martinique. Aging for two years ex cask of rum.
Whiskeys aged in these temperature and humidity conditions are very rare and recognized for their quality. If the angels are particularly greedy (10% evaporation per year, against 2% in a continental climate), they are also very generous. It is recognized that the concentration of aromas and therefore the maturation is about 4 times faster there.
