The Explorer is the third edition of The Early Days Collection – an exploration of younger whisky and what can actually be achieved by employing painstaking care in the work with casks and the production process. The idea is to allow the four Early Days Collection editions to represent the different development stages – stages that together tell the whisky-loving world the beginnings of the Box Distillery history
The Explorer is mainly a Bourbon-matured whisky in three different cask sizes – 40, 100 and 130-litres. Age varies between three years and three months, up to almost four years. Approximately 60% of the whisky comes from peated distillate, which gives The Explorer a peaty character.

Earthy, woody peat rises first, shortly followed by fresh apple and blackberry, rich and smoky. The fruit continues to develop, now slightly tropical and zesty. A hint of milk chocolate, too.
