PRODUCER NOTES
Mackmyra began as an idea formed by 8 friends on a skiing trip in 1998 – each had brought a bottle of malt whisky to share, and the topic of conversation turned to how whisky is made, and why there wasn’t a Swedish one… the result is Mackmyra Svensk Whisky, which first began distilling at the end of 1999. They began with a small 100litre copper boiler at the Bruk mill, which gave them only 30l of whisky per distillation cycle. This was the inspiration for the small 30l casks the distillery uses today – smaller casks result in faster maturation. Production was expanded in 2002, but remains very small by international standards. Swedish oak is used extensively, and there is a consistent effort to ensure that Mackmyra whisky exemplifies a specifically Swedish character in their whiskies. A large proportion of their barrels are stored in the disused Bodås Mine.
CASK
Single-malt whisky aged in first-fill Masi Constasera Amarone casks, first-fill ex-bourbon casks and first-fill Oloroso sherry casks, with smaller proportions aged in of first-fill American oak ex-Pedro Ximénez casks and first-fill 30l Marckmyra Reserve casks.
TASTING NOTES
Amarone casks which previously held the Masi Costasera Amarone play the most significant role in the character of this malt. Red grapes, raisins and a soft herbal spice-character dominate, with vanilla, ginger and pear adding extra weight and complexity.
FOOD PAIRING
Almost a dessert whisky; this has the richness to endure being served on the rocks, but you will lose some of the complexity. Excellent neat, with cheese and red grapes, as an after-dinner treat.
