Mackmyra Svensk Rök Swedish Single Malt 0,5 l
|Alcoholic strength||46,1% vol.|
Smoky whisky does not necessarily come from Islay. The Mackmyra Svensk Rök is proving that a fantastic smoky single malt can come from Sweden as well. The Mackmyra Distillery has launched the first Swedish whisky at all. With the Mackmyra Svensk Rök it is offering a very special peated dram.
On the nose the single malt offers a warm sensation of spicy oak, a mellow smoke aroma, juniper, vanilla fudge and fruity influences of citrus, raisins and pears. On the palate the smoky peat is becoming heavier. It mixes with vanilla, a slight sweetness, oak and green fruits. But most exciting is the juniper note. Juniper has always been an integral part of the Swedish cuisine and therefore it constitutes a very Swedish characteristic of the Mackmyra Svensk Rök. The finish offers a good portion of smoky peat and roasted oak.
The Mackmyra Svensk Rök was launched in 2013 and is the only smoky Swedish single malt whisky. Its name is also pointing out the special character as Svensk Rök means “Swedish smoke”. Especially the juniper notes make this dram very Swedish but there is something more that should not be overlooked.
During the maturation the whisky is filled in different kinds of casks. One kind of them is made of Swedish oak. Actually the oak was grown on the island of Visingsö and should have been used for building ships for the Swedish Royal Navy. Now it is used to create fantastic single malts.
The Mackmyra Distillery is a quite young company in the old whisky business. In 1998 eight friends had the idea to produce a Swedish whisky and just one year later the first dram was distilled. Since then various creations have been launched and the world quickly took note of the Mackmyra Distillery. Thus, the company was appointed the European Spirits Producer of the Year 2012 by the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC).
