Carl Hamilton Series - Jan Guillou
In the mid-1980s, Carl Hamilton made a prominent entrance into the era of the end of the Cold War, on the precipice between the Sweden of old and the Sweden that emerged. Jan Guillou's Carl Hamilton series immediately became a great success and Sweden's greatest fictional espionage successes of all time.
The character, like whisky, has matured with dignity and is highly topical through the new book - The One Who Killed the Angels of Hell.
Karaktär - Carl Hamilton
Patrick Björsjö, Experience Manager at Mackmyra
"Mackmyra has a strong tradition of unique collaborations that have resulted in new flavours as well as experiences. The character of Carl Hamilton is another example of how we are driven by thinking in new ways.
The whisky is the result of a fun and carefully selected collaboration that will offer tasty excitement in each "chapter"
good- not bad, would recommend!
To be honest, I brought this one bottle for keeping until such a day that this author, me, has that sort of accolade.
The Classic Cask Finish - Round, soft with pleasing notes of vanilla, pear, apple, citrus caramel and honey.
