Jim McEwan was a major fair of the beverage and tried there about 1,200 whisky, but this was the best, he praised. This is not a frivolous statement, because he has a reputation to lose. In 2004, whisky in five Oloroso sherry casks from Spanish oak has been bottled in the Rugen and camped in the Rugenkeller for almost 4 years. During the filling process, the whisky with mountain spring water was reduced alcohol content on a Distilation of 46% and 2,596 bottled. Some barrels were taken to the storage on the 3,454 metre Jungfraujoch. The maturation of whisky at minus four degrees Celsius resulted in a gold-coloured whiskey with less loss of alcohol. The ice label whisky was unfiltered and undiluted with 58.8% alcohol content as single cask in 859 bottles filled.
Jim McEwan describes the Swiss Highland single malt whisky with a color that is reminiscent of chestnut, the body is light, fresh and rich and full of youthful power.
